Snakes on a Boat: Robotic sailing with Python
Sophia led a team from the University of Southampton which recently won the World Robotic Sailing Competition (Micro Sailboat class). Come and hear about how we used Python to make a boat sail itself, including:
- Why is it so hard to make a robot sail?
- What happened to us at the World Robotic Sailing Championship (besides winning it)?
- Who are ROS and Brian?
- What tools did we combine to make the Black Python sail?
