The things we prefer – Part 1

Everyone has his/her own tools for creating things. In robotics there are many good hardware and software which we use.

Introduction

This is the post what we forgot to write :]. So who are we?
First I would like to introduce my friend Bence Magyar, he is a university student at ELTE (HU university), and he is learning computer science. And myself, I graduated as a programmer at the DE (HU university too).
We started to learn robotics, when we bought two NXTs. Our first project was a wall follower bot. Next summer he met an evil engineer and our project had been boosted. First we started to think in more electronics related things, second to make a good bot, we used a router. It is a cheap and easy way to make an wireless bot. Thats why we are posting things about OpenWRT and routers. OpenCV is more robotics related, and Bence is learning it now, I also want to learn image processing if I have time.
Our goal is to make robots, that will reach space and explore it. We have some robot projects ongoing, one is to make four rover and do some swarm technology.
Also we went to a robotic competition in our country, it’s called Hungarians On Mars ( or Magyarok a Marson in HU). The project files and documents can be found here.
We also have a robot working team, that’s called Buggers. You can see it’s the logo at the top.
Our goal with this blog to share our way of robotics, and help other people who stuck with the same problem.
