Robotics Tutorials

SparkFun has a lot of useful products, especially sensors.  They also have a lot of good tutorials.  They have just started up a video series on concepts in robots.  A few minutes each, they do a good job of explaining basic concepts.  The first video is a bit of a promo of their series and new products, but later videos concentrate on the concepts more.  I recommend that you go to the intro video, and subscribe.

Robotics 101
Angular Motion
Linear Motion
Transfer of Motion
Precision Motion
Mechanical Structure

As always, SparkFun has an extensive Learn section on their website, with tutorials and curricula available.

Please keep in mind that all comments will be moderated, and that this blog is designed to provide technical information to help high school students and their mentors learn the basics on how to build a FIRST robot. Thank you.
