This month’s DPRG monthly meeting is an update and preparation session to
help people get ready for the *December 12th Virtual Robot Competition*.

*Line Following Simulator Update:*

DPRG member and simulator creator, Ron Grant, will go over the new features
in LFS, the line following simulator used in the competition. LFS now
includes a new “Time Warp” feature that allows you to view your robot’s
journey around the track many times faster than actual robot travel speed.
This feature is very useful to determine the effects of a change in the
robot’s tuning or algorithm. The simulator has an improved user interface
that allows for configurable parameters to be changed using slider controls
on the fly.  LFS also has several other enhancements, including the ability
to “skin” your robot’s image into the simulator.

*LFS Workshop – Get your simulator running & start coding:*

The second part of the meeting will be a workshop on how to install the
software and how to write a robot controller. You are encouraged to
download Processing and LFS from the links below and participate in the
workshop. If you get stuck you will be able to share your screen and get
help during the meeting. LFS has 3 example robot controllers included that
can get you started.
