C@H Google Plus community has been created

The comment system on this site leaves much to be desired. Formatting is non-existent, attachments are not supported, and most importantly, spam-reducing features are very basic leaving the bulk of spam processing to yours truly. At the same time, about 75% of human commenters have @gmail.com address and therefore already have access to Google Plus. Given all that, creating a Google Plus community seems to be the right way to go.

At present, the community have no structure and there are almost no rules. All G+ functionality is present, including links and attachments. Self-promotion is allowed but spam is not. Pictures of your own (in)complete projects are much welcome.

Even though the built-in comments will stay in place for some time I encourage everybody to migrate to G+. This will allow better support, discussion, as well as idea exchange. I’m also hoping the spam will go down giving me more time to develop and share useful stuff.

Thank you for your attention!

Sparkfun 2010 Autonomous Vehicle Competition

Despite less than perfect weather, this year’s AVC was a remarkable event. On land as well as in the air, several vehicles were able to finish 100% of the track. In addition, certain airplanes demonstrated autonomous takeoff and landing. The official event page and Twitter trend contain much information about the event; I just wanted to share several pictures that I’ve made while spectating. Enjoy,

Oleg.

I just came back from Sparkfun autonomous vehicle competition and here’s some pictures:

This rover made first place on land. For some reason land and air vehicles were competing in the same category so this giy got second place. This was the only rover able to finish the track. It did it 3 times with good results. Here is the builder’s log: http://deathpod3000.wordpress.com
