Robotics Website


This will be my focal webpage on robotics.
I've worked with the Robotics & Automation Society of Portland State University towards several robots including the KHR-1 and the Hahoe Head. Click on links for more information.
I'm particularly interested in walking intelligent robots. Ideally l envision the world full of walking robots just like in the movie iRobot - delivering mail/courier packages etc.
I've used and own various microcontrollers including 6800, Z80, 68000 based microprocessors, PIC, Handy Board, Basic Stamps - I use the BS2x 24 pin, Xilinx FPGA Spartan 3 development board - this was used to build the winning robot (by someone else) at PDXBOT 2005 and this board has a FPGA with 150,000 gates!. I'm working on getting one of the boards below mentioned in item #1 and using it with the Spartan 3 since 8 bit microcontrollers are out, 32bit microcontrollers are the in thing and very affordable now to survive a fatal robot crash!
I also worked with the Xilinx XUP Virtex 2 University Development Board.
