Hello

Postby mikef » Sun Dec 13, 2009 4:11 am

My name is Mike Ferguson, I'm a Computer Science PhD student at SUNY Albany. I've done some electrical engineering in my undergraduate work, although my final degree was in Mathematics. My area of research is in robotics. My school supported work is in Social Robotics, much of my personal work tends more into walking robots, and recently, machine vision.

I've been an AVR user for about 6 years. The cost of ARM-level development tools, and my dislike of the complexity of dealing with embedded operating systems, has kept me from moving into faster and better chips. The XMOS has been an amazing relief to use: the speed and power to perform, with a very clean programming interface.

Glad to hear you are having a great experience with XMOS!

As I have said before, also brilliant to see some fellow computer scientists on here! Good stuff! If you are interested in robotics and vision, there is certainly a few people here that are interested in that too!

Anyhow, welcome to the site! Have fun!
