Come July 31, I will be in the Netherlands giving a demonstration and lecture on RoboArm at the Observe, Hack and Make(OHM) 2013. OHM which holds once in four years is a gathering of technology enthusiasts, DIY specialists and much more. I believe it is a must for anyone interested in the Maker Culture. I am seriously looking forward to seeing more practical and DIY presentations and learning as much as I can.
Using RoboArm we also hope to stir discussion on sustainability and the development of low-cost robotics at OHM.
Later in the year precisely from the 9th to the 12th of September, I will be at the 11th edition of the IEEE AFRICON 2013 Conference in Mauritius. The theme for this year’s conference is “Sustainable Engineering for a Better Future”. I will be presenting a paper on the development of RoboArm. I really look forward to interacting with other professionals, creating links and exchanging knowledge.
IEEE currently does a huge lot for the technological world as a whole. Specifically in the robotics field, I consider the IEEE Spectrum’s Robotics blog an authoritative, and often up to date, source of news and information. I am therefore grateful for the opportunity to present a paper at an IEEE conference.
