This event is targeted to two overlapping demographic groups: (1) those enrolled in the Udacity Self Driving Car nanodegree and (2) those interested in working on small 1/10th- to 1/16th-scale self-racing robocars. Of course, all of our members are welcome to join.
The facility we will be using has a maker space area with tables and seats for working on projects. There is also a discussion area with couches and tables conducive for a study group.
Please note: This space is used throughout the week by different groups, so to ensure that we keep the space clean, no food or drinks are permitted. Also, for those needing a ride to the facility, please state your neighborhood in the Comments section below and hopefully someone attending will be able to give you a ride.
10:00 - 11:30: Discussion of Udacity assignments that members are working/stuck on. Please come with questions. Those only interested in working on small-scale self-racing robocars are welcomed to work in the maker space area.
11:30 - 13:00: Break up into groups for further assignment discussion or work on your small-scale self-racing robocar.
13:00 - Whenever: [For those interested] Go to lunch and have great conversations.
These times are flexible, and depending on how many questions are brought up, the first time slot could be as short as an hour.
Working on robocars provides us with the opportunity to both learn and apply knowledge that involves Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and Robotics.
There are a number of resources to get started. Please check out <a>http://www.diyrobocars.com,</a> and click on the "DIY Robocar Projects" tab.
Ultimately, we are hoping to hold regular races similar to those held by the DIY Robocars Meetup group in Oakland, CA.
