Only slightly off topic - and a bit beyond my patience - BUT -


If you want to get your feet wet with the Robotics Operating System ROS, which is the core software stack for the actual open-source Robomaster competition class robots, there are finally some workable instructions and code availble to try on some cheap hardware.

A fully blown Jetbot is around $150 and happens to include a Kepler-class GPU capable of running the ResNet-18 Deep Learning Model so you can dabble with AI features like Facial Recognition, Edge of Table Detection, etc. all under ROS.

And apparently there is already a simulator to test your programs in VR, so in theory a Jetbot isn't even required (but where would be the fun?).

Very cool! The simulator runs on Gazebo, which was tailored to work pretty seamlessly with ROS.

Not off topic at all and thanks for sharing.
