    Hey Jorge,

    Yes, let's hook up when you get back after winning the race I can't wait to see your VX to give me more ideas for mods

    I think the competition started today. Saw a headline about it, but didn't read any further.

    Thanks for all the advice

    We are back in Texas from our DARPA Grand Challenge adventure. We received many compliments on our choice of vehicle. Unfortunately we didn't qualify for the finals and didn't compete in the race.

    Those interested in learning more about how our robotic VX did at the qualifying event can visit the news section of our web site.

    We stopped in Tucson on our way back and visited with Jeff and Triathlete, they got pictures of our three VXs. We gave them a tour of the VX and the mods we made, they got pictures of those as well.

    Thanks to everyone for the advice on this project.

    We will continue working on the software, which can always be improved.

    Also, Andy Miller (aka Swordy) came and visited us in Primm, NV, during the Grand Challenge when our VX was on display for the public at the parking lot behind Buffalo Bill's (next to the DARPA tent). Thanks for coming and visiting Andy! It was great meeting you!

    Art,

    Out of curiosity, what sort of programming language do you use for that? Is it C++? Assembly? Or something else? Where would I learn how to do that type of programming?

    Thanks!

    Programming Language

    Hi Steve,
    All our code is C & C++. If you know C++ you can take a look at the Player / Stage project for examples of how to structure a robot program.

    If you want to learn programming and robots, Lego Mindstorms is a good place to start.

    Both of my sons (12 & 15) have built and programmed robots using Lego Mindstorms. People have built sophisticated robots using it, click here for some examples, and my favorite, a Lego robot to solve Rubik's Cube!
