The first field test of my Raspberry Pi Zero W driven Desert Bot

This site was created so I could share what I know about robotics with other hobbyists.

What do I know about robotics?

  • As a kid I used to take apart all my toys and use the parts to create robots. It’s been a lifelong fascination.
  • I was inspired by my grandfather who worked for the MIT Radiation Lab (radlab) in the 40’s and specialized in electronics.
  • I studied Medical Electronics Engineering at the Franklin Institute of Boston.
  • My first job after college was in a robotics factory. The robots featured an arm that traveled along a z-axis to move silicon wafers in hostile conditions (acid, heat).
  • After many year working on cloud-based software projects I now work on cloud-based robots. The robots are AMRs (autonomous mobile robots) that assist warehouse workers in picking, packing, replenishing and sorting products in fulfillment centers and even grocery stores.
