Welcome to the GeerHead column forum. This is David Geer, contributing word welder. Like the column itself, this forum can include discussions of industrial robots, college and high school robot projects and competitions, robotics research, research robot platforms, robotic products, parts and components, unusual robots, emerging technologies related to robotics and anything you’ve ever seen me cover in GeerHead. I am more a writer-reporter-journalist covering technology and robotics than an engineer (in fact, I am not an engineer). So, if I don’t have the right answer or you don’t hear from me, feel free to self-serve amongst … yourselves.
