Title: Getting started in robotics as hobby
Post by: psilocine on June 29, 2014, 09:20:55 PM
Hey guys,

I'm all new to the scene but I decided I want to start robotics as my new hobby.

I have a little hard time getting started though.
I can't really find any good starter tutorials on robotics.
I do have some experience in serveral programming languages but I have very little experience in electronics.

I did a little research on what I want my starter projects to be.
I know that a walking robot is way out of my league (for now) but it would be nice to start with some remote controlled vehicles, Maybe even balance one on two wheels.. I dunno.

The main problem is that I can't really find a place to start.
I think that if i got the basic electronics wired up and connected to a program on my computer I'd be able to develop my skills from there.

I'm thinking about buying a starter cursus for robotics, but they are kinda expensive.

So if you guys have any links/tips to get me started it would be of great help. ;)

(excuse my spelling, I'm not English)


Thanks already

Move your mouse cursor to the upper right corner of this web page and click on where it says "Robot Tutorials".
Lots to read there to get you started.
