PiWars 2017: Our Journey Begins
The competition that every self-respecting Raspberry Pi robotics enthusiast wants to attend.
The objective - Build a robot, controlled by a Raspberry Pi, that must complete several challenges. Some of these the robot will be under the direct control of a human, but for several the robot must think for itself.
There are many technical challenges to overcome, but hopefully we have the team to achieve the goal.
Mike “The Arduino Guy” - Mike is our Arduino Expert, having extensive experience with the Arduino microcontroller, and having built robots in the past.
Simon - Our expert in all things 3D printed, If you can describe it, he can almost certainly design and print it.
Oly - Python expert having designed and built a 3D CAD system in Python.
Jake - New to the Hackspace, but has got stuck into a variety of projects
Ian - Took part in the last PiWars (didn’t come last!), learnt a lot of what not to do.
Ian’s Offspring1 - Took part in the last PiWars, designed the aesthetics of the previous robot and helped with the wiring.
