Chalmers Robotics are arranging Makernatta together with ETA, GBG Make, Mikrofabriken and GBG Queer Hackerspace.
We welcome hackers and makers to a locale in Redbergsplatsen where we will build stuff under 24 hours! I will be a lan-party feeling over the event, and good opportunity to get to know other makerspaces around Göteborg.
The ticket kosts 100SEK and goes to material for the event, like microcontrollers and LED’s.
On Sunday the 13:th of November we will continue with electronics and Raspberry Pi at Chalmers Robotics.
Several workshops will show you how to setup and work with electronic components.
We will go through components such as buttons, LED’s, servos and relays.
The workshop is free.
12:00 – Intro
13:00 – Blinking LED
14:00 – Handle input
15:00 – Control heavier loads
16:00 – Position control with servo
Equipment that is required:
* Raspberry Pi (any model will do)
* Ethernet cable (to both laptop and RPi)
* Micro USB cable and 5V supply
* Know the MAC-address of your Raspberry Pi so we can find it easy (ifconfig)
* Preinstalled SD-card with Rasbian or equilient
There will be a few Raspberry Pi that you can borrow from Chalmers Robotics, but because the installation is personal it’s recommended that you bring your own.
Ethernet switches will be placed strategically around the locale.
This is the third Midsummer Madness event that is arranged. Members and friends of Chalmers Robotics hackerspace get to gether and eat some food and build böp to solve a challange.
This years challenge was to sink a ship in a small pond.
1:st place Team Fire (Time 3:09)
2:nd place Team Brute Force (Time 3:10)
3:rd place Team Water (Time 5:01)
Chalmers Robotics is once again arranging the event Midsummer Madness where we get toghether on the Swedish midsummer to eat food, and team up to build some awesome creations.
The goal of this years mission is to sink a ship.
Would you like to learn more about electronics but don’t know were to start? Erik Sternå at Chalmers Robotics Society will hold two lectures on basic electronics, which will discuss the basics of electronics from a more practical perspective (as in what you actually need to know to work with electronics).
The first lecture will discuss basic concepts and components as well of their functions, while the second lecture will discuss more advanced components and some common circuits.The lectures will be held on two Wednesdays, starting March 9th at 18:00. Each lecture will take about 2 hours.
Lighter refreshments and fika will be served. We will gather at Chalmers Robotics Society’s workshop at around 17:45. The lecture is planned to be held in Swedish, but can be held in English on demand. Welcome
The coming Wednesday(2016-01-20), starting at 18:00, we are going to hold a meeting for planing this years Swedish Robot Championship! If you are interested in arranging this event, we will be happy to see you on this meeting. If you are interested, but can’t attend the meeting, please consider sending us an email, so that we get a clearer picture of how many we are.
