Hey guys!

I see that you all enjoy robotics competition so I thought it would be fitting to let you know about the 2010 Notre Dame Mechatronic Football event. The senior engineering students at Notre Dame are feverishly working on their robots for the combine(4/15) and robotics game(4/23) next week. http://www.ndrobots.com/

While the event will be educational, we also wanted to encourage discussion on our social media platforms by offering a few incentives. These incentives range from robotic kits to Notre Dame football tickets! All you have to do in join in on the discussion - http://www.ndrobots.com/2010/04/08/contests-and-prizes/

The game will also be streamed live online. The game will be on April 23rd, at 7pm EST. Links will be provided at http://www.ndrobots.com/ . If you can't watch the game live we will be providing highlights on our YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/ndrobots You can check it out now to see a few highlights of last year and interviews with professors.

We are also on Twitter and Facebook! So check the event out when you get a chance. Please feel free to shoot us questions on the engineering of the robots and the event!

Thanks!

Oh, have an enjoyable National Robotics Week!

I will check this out! It's also nice to see that we have some online presence.

My evil plan is almost complete! Soon we will be ready to google-bomb our way up the list and displace First Robotics!

Also, what type of micro-controller are the robots using? What are they programed in? What is the processor architecture? (ARM?) For Botball we use a modified Chumby (ARM), and it is mainly programmed in C, although there are hacks (which Botball allows for) that let you use C++, Lua, and anything that runs on the JVM.

"Last year’s robots had basically no autonomy, but this year, students are leveraging that past experience to make at least the start of the play autonomous."

All of the robots use either a PIC18F8722 or PIC18F8622 microcontroller. They both fall under the same family of microcontrollers (PIC18F8722) and if you are interested a data sheet can be found at:

http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/devicedoc/39646b.pdf

Because the microcontrollers belong to the PIC family they fall under Harvard architecture. The basic philosophy behind the architecture is that there is a physical separation between storage and signal pathways. The biggest advantage of this is that both the memory buses for instructions and date can be accessed concurrently.

Additionally, because they are PIC micrcontrollers they are programmed in ANSI C. We program them in C because it is the one of two languages (the other being Fortran) which we learn at Notre Dame as mechanical engineers.

Obviously robotic competition is a enjoyable area for us. Thanks for sharing the 2010 Notre Dame Mechatronic Football event details here. Educational events are craze to me. I am working as a writer in thesis writing services and i promote educational events. Our company provides best academic papers for students.
