Guest lecture by Arnis Mangolds
On Thursday, March 28, Arnis Mangolds of C-2i Inc. came to talk to our class about robot design. He discussed design decisions for the Lemmings and Talon from his days at Foster-Miller as well as the design of his company's SeaOtter. While we won't be taking our robot into rivers, lakes or surf zones, there was much to be learned about constraining problems and designing the best solution to fit needs and requirements.
