I attended the one-day Stanford-Berkeley Robotics Symposium at Stanford University in California. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn about what top researchers are interested in and working on.
I also happened to meet our motor suppliers there, (by sheer coincidence!), met up with some old robot-building buddies from Berkeley, and chatted with a mentor of ours for several hours, which gave me lots of clarity with some technical questions we had. All in all, a fantastic event and a good chance to catch up with our friends in the robotics industry! (Our mentor is in the far right in the photo below!)
