Robots With Their Heads in the Clouds
The five elements of cloud robotics
Robots haven’t yet lived up to their potential, but they’re about to benefit enormously from the Cloud. In this talk I’ll describe how a new generation of robots can use wireless networking, big data, machine learning, open-source, and the Internet of Things to improve how they assist us in tasks from driving to housekeeping to surgery.

GoGo Board
http://www.gogoboard.org/
GoGo Board: Science and Robotics for the Inventive Mind
The GoGo board is a programmable device that is designed for sensor-based and control projects. It is suited for building robots, data loggers, and devices for human-computer interaction. Its functionality is inspired by the MIT Cricket and many other programmable devices such as the the Lego Mindstorms, the IRX board, and Basic Stamps.
The main goal of the GoGo Board project is to create an open-source platform that is designed to be low-cost and allow for local assembly by those who are interested.
We choose human scale parts that can be assembled with out special soldering equipment. The parts are carefully selected so that they are widely available in many countries.
So far, the GoGo Board has been locally built in the USA, Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, Malaysia, China, and many other developing countries.
The cost of the board is kept to a minimum.

The Arduino Robot
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Robot
The Arduino Robot is the first official Arduino on wheels. The robot has two processors, one on each of its two boards. The Motor Board controls the motors, and the Control Board reads sensors and decides how to operate.
Each of the boards is a full Arduino board programmable using the Arduino IDE.
Both Motor and Control boards are microcontroller boards based on the ATmega32u4 (datasheet). The Robot has many of its pins mapped to on-board sensors and actuators.
Programming the robot is similar to the process with the Arduino Leonardo. Both processors have built-in USB communication, eliminating the need for a secondary processor.
This allows the Robot to appear to a connected computer as a virtual (CDC) serial / COM port.
As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your own robots.
The Arduino Robot is the result of the collective effort from an international team looking at how science can be made fun to learn. Arduino is now on wheels, come ride with us!

Turn Raspberry Pi into a Lego robot
Move over, Mindstorms NXT; a Kickstarter campaign is gearing up to provide Raspberry Pi-powered Lego robotics.
We love Lego, and we love robots — so a Lego robot powered by the Raspberry Pi processor designed to both teach basic programming and to bring robotics to the Raspberry Pi strikes us as a stellar idea.

Rich's Robot Musings
This is a place where you can learn about robots and robotics engineering. If you are interested in robotics and are old enough to read, you should enjoy the information on this site. In most cases I give just a small description of each individual robot or application.
I encourage you to conduct your own research on any robots you find interesting. The internet is usually a good place to start for that. If you are not a big fan of geometry or trigonometry you will probably find the material on kinematics tedious.

Introduction to Robotics
http://www.academicearth.org/courses/introduction-to-robotics
Introduction to Robotics .. course .. videos of lectures
The purpose of this course is to introduce you to basics of modeling, design, planning, and control of robot systems. In essence, the material treated in this course is a brief survey of relevant results from geometry, kinematics, statics, dynamics, and control.
The course is presented in a standard format of lectures, readings and problem sets.
Lectures will be based mainly, but not exclusively, on material in the Lecture Notes.
Lectures will follow roughly the same sequence as the material presented in the notes, so it can be read in anticipation of the lectures.
Topics: robotics foundations in kinematics, dynamics, control, motion planning, trajectory generation, programming and design.

Sociable Robots : MIT Panel Discussion (online video)
Cynthia Breazeal makes social robots, machines with the capacity to interact with people on psychological terms.
She says they “open up a new world of questions.” But these increasingly sophisticated devices make Sherry Turkle uneasy, since they challenge the idea of human relationships and the very “purpose, importance, of living things.”

PicoCricket
http://www.picocricket.com/
A PicoCricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin, light up, and play music.
You can plug lights, motors, sensors, and other devices into a PicoCricket, then program them to react, interact, and communicate.
For example, you can make a cat and program it to purr when someone pets it. Or you can make a birthday cake and program it to play a song when someone blows out the candles.
The PicoCricket Kit is similar to the LEGO® MINDSTORMS™ robotics kits. MINDSTORMS is designed especially for making robots, while the PicoCricket Kit is designed for making artistic creations with lights, sound, music, and motion.

We are creating a shared space for collecting curricular materials on the use of educational robotics, primarily in middle school and undergraduate classes, with a focus on using the RoboCup and RoboCupJunior challenges as a testbed for coursework.

Mobile Robots (Podcast / Audio)
Mobile robots are an emerging technology field, and iRobot Corporation of Burlington MA is leading the way. iRobot's products are not far-flung, far-off science fiction, but robots for the real world. They are practical, reliable, innovative products that effectively answer users needs with creative engineering and design.
Ms Greiner's talk describes this new class of technology, how technology accelerations have affected our field, and how mobile robots will themselves catalyze accelerating change.
Under Ms. Greiner's leadership, iRobot Corporation is delivering robots into the industrial, consumer, academic, and military markets.
Unfortuately there was a lot of demonstrating during this talk which cannot be seen in the audio ;-(
