This is the home page for the Robot Club (a.k.a. BARC). We make robots move around and (hopefully) not hit stuff.

You can check out the repository from here. If you can't access the repository, shoot Nick an email and he can grant you access.

Most of our time is spent trying to hit linux and ROS with metaphorical crowbars.

    • welcome people at the entry and guide them to the stand/robot lab
    • use the navigation stack, a pre-acquired map, and navigate from node to node
  • Food Server Robot (B21)
    • roam a pre-defined area in a pre-acquired map with a tray
    • use navigation stack
