Do you know robotics?

Hi 🙂
Plea for help here 🙂
rg1024-tripulated-robot
The websites team and I would like to feature a photo of some real robots that have been programmed and/or built using Fedora as the main banner image for the Fedora Robotics spin – but we don’t know of any specific Fedora robots. We’d even be happy with a picture of a non-Fedora robot at this point.
If you know someone who is knowledgable about robotics and/or Fedora robotics, and who may have a picture they’d be willing to let us use, can you please get in touch?
Thanks 🙂

  1. I run a robotics club for my students after school once a week. We use LEGO EV3 robots running some custom Debian distro called ev3dev, but we do all of our development using Fedora. If you’re interested, I could send you some pictures of our robots? Is this what you’re looking for?

    Hi, Máirín!
    In the university where I have studied we organize a robotics tournament every year. It’s made by students for students and it’s low-budget. Anyway, we have photos of the several editions of it under a Creative Commons license on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/turfeelt/sets/
    These kind of robots are called line-followers. I helped to organize the Second edition and I have seen students using, actually, Windows and Ubuntu as environments. This kind of competition is common; there is, for example, the Freescale Cup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9ke8n_rxYI
    Oh, and if you want to see more multimedias from our tournament, the TUR, you can check our site (it’s not at all pretty because we are engineers and not designers :-\ ): http://www.tur.eletrica.ufu.br
    I hope it helps you guys a little. Bye 😀 !
