BDI's Four-legged "BigDog"
An amazing four legged robot that balances as if it were alive!
The autonomous robot competition held every year during Open House by the IEEE-CS Branch.
Robo-Magellan emphasizes autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance over outdoor terrain. Robots are given the GPS waypoints of several orange traffic cones and must navigate from a starting point to an ending point in the least time.
A yearly robotics gathering that includes several competitions, robotics booths, etc.
DARPA Grand Challenge
Created in response to a Congressional and DoD mandate, the DARPA Grand Challenge is a field test to accelerate research and development in autonomous ground vehicles that will help save American lives on the battlefield.

Dr. Seng created a custom board for his CPE482 Mobile Robotics class and for RoboRodentia bots. Unassembled kits are now available for $70 from IEEE.
The AVRcam is a small, opensource camera module with a real-time image processing engine capable of tracking colorful objects. Dr. Seng is using it with his PolyBot board in his CPE482 Mobile Robotics class. Unassembled kits available for just $99.95.
RoboRodentia Bundle Installer
Installs everything you need to get started with the ere boards that Dr. Seng loans out. WinAVR, AVRLib, AVR Studio, MEGA32ISP, TortoiseCVS, Open Command Prompt Here, Documentation, Examples in C and Assembly.
Dr. Seng's RoboRodentia Page
Explains how to get started with the Atmel. We recommend getting the RoboRodentia Bundle Installer above because all the software and Atmega32 documentation mentioned on Seng's page are included in the bundle. (however, the bundle is over a year old now)
