Tips and Tricks, Tools of the trade

Here is a list (in no particular order) of my favorite tips, tricks and tools in the Robotics Industry. This will be updated as often as I come across something new.

Great online Robotics course, for 2-4th year engineering students

Online plotting (even with APIs!)


Online raw data analysis (even rosbag csv exports!) of huge data files

Here’s my heart rate:



Check correlation, wiggle eyebrows at causation


inspiration for better data viz: (so much data……)


Online checking of Elec components (with API access also)


Online checking PCB makers for cost and speed


Online quotation for PCB manufacture and stuffing/testing


Quick turn around, slightly expensive Canadian PCB manufacturer


Very cheap, quite capable crowd sourced PCB manufacture
