    Date: 
    Monday, March 7, 2016 - 19:30

    Location: ESAT 02.58

    During the past sessions you have assembled your very own sumo-robot.
    In this next session you are going to program it!

    We'll give a short presentation on programming strategies and will provide a basic working Arduino tempate from which you can start building your own advanced control strategy.

    We'll also provide a sumo field to test your robot.

    Do you wish to participate in the competition and are starting from scratch?
    No problem, we'll help you out with a standard sumo robot frame + motors/sensors.

    Last semester we got the sensors and motors of our sumo robot operational, so now it is time to create the frame or "skeleton" of our robot.

    In this session, we will provide CAD files for creating your own standard frame which you can use to build your own customized frame. We will use the lasercutters at FabLab to create all the necessary components and afterwards assemble the parts.

  • Soiree Technique: Autonomous Vehicles (Tuesday 23 Feb. 19h30, Aud. A ESAT)

    The idea of autonomous vehicles becomes less and less a vision for the distant future. Transportation is becoming less dependent on human input, as today’s cars already have self-parking features and autonomous braking systems. However, to pave the road for self-driving cars, several challenges still need to be overcome in the domain of computer vision, control systems, data and privacy issues and legal boundaries. In this seminar, the current state and future needs for autonomous vehicles are discussed by three presenters:
    o Prof. Luc van Gool: associated with PSI/Visics at ESAT,KU Leuven and Computer Vision Laboratory of ETHZ
    o Filip Geuens, CEO of Xenomatix
    o Harold Perik, Flanders MAKE

    Hi everyone!

    On Wednesday 28/10, we are going to participate in a friendly Paintball competition against our colleagues from SPIE ( http://www.spiekul.be/ ). It doesnt matter if you're a beginner or paintball legend, join us against SPIE and show them who's boss! This is also the perfect training moment for the ESAT vs Mech paintball battle of next semester.

    Around 19.30 we're leaving in Leuven, and expect to play from 20.00 to 22.00 at the indoor paintball field in Merchtem (a very nice and varied field).

    On Thursday 08/10, the IEEE Soiree Pratique team will guide you in designing your own bicycle remote.

    This will allow you to pimp your bike and remotely control lights & sounds mounted on your trusted iron steed!

    We will provide all of the components and teach you how to program/solder/assemble them.

    For the whole package (arduino uno + IR transmitter/receiver + buzzer + leds/resistors + breadboard + battery holder + cables), we ask a small contribution:
