Shoe for the robot

Good story, Jon. I'm impressed for your solution for the robot's slippery feet. You created robot shoes so it won't fall down. There's a Sherlock Ohms blog in this story somewhere.

Jon, that was an interesting description of your first experiences.  First, I suggest you get off of WindowsXP.  Windows 7 will make your machine run better and would not have the driver problem, I expect.  I did the upgrade to an old machine and it definately improved the system. 

I am also wondering about wireless communications.  It has a USB port.  I wonder if a Zigbee or Bluetooth dongle might work with this.  Something to try.

More than just a training tool?

Nice in-depth account of how to work with FSLBOT, Jon. Based on your hands-on experience, how might the robot help students and hobbyists dive deeper into mechatronics? And is this simply a training platform or are there possiblities for real applications based on FSLBOT?

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
