Racing Robots!

Prove your robot's superiority using MakerHub LINX, a chipKIT WF32, a Leap Motion Controller, and LabVIEW.

Using both LINX and the Leap Motion controller library, the chipKIT WF32's built in WiFi is used to remotely control the speed of each robot depending on the frequency you wave your hand up and down. The faster your hand waves, the greater the PWM value sent to your robot's motor.

Sudharsan (Dharsan) Sukumar is a bioengineer in his senior year at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. He is interested in medical device engineering and plans on going to graduate school for medical devices after receiving his bachelor's degree. Dharsan has experience with bioinstrumentation and previously worked in two different research labs. His first lab worked with actin and myosin protein research and at his second lab he worked with an anti-pancreatic cancer drug to determine its effectiveness. Dharsan currently works at Digilent in Pullman, Washington as a product marketing engineering intern working mostly with LabVIEW, the myRIO, and the chipKIT WF32 sold by Digilent to make beginners guides to LabVIEW and the WF32.
