More online robotics courses

These are being taught by one of the Standford professors that taught the machine learning course that I posted last fall, plus a prof from U of Virginia.

CS 101: BUILDING A SEARCH ENGINE
CS 373: PROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC CAR

See Udacity or directly to CS 101 and CS 373

The robotic car course adds to the previous course, but the previous courses is not a requirement.  CS 373 assumes strong programming knowledge, but CS 101 does not need any previous programming background.

Navigating beyond the reach of GPS

Found an article about some research to allow navigation / position detection where GPS does not work.  Bigger systems already use this technology, but the research is to develop it for use on small resource and battery life constrained devices, like cell phones.  That will also apply to small, mobile, indoor robotics projects.
