 Reports on French Robotics Cup robots :
Equipe "Les Séniors"
http://www.multimania.com/jclepot/index.htm
Homepage of a team. The project they wrote in 99 is particularly interesting (follow the link "La coupe 1999 -> Notre avant projet").
The thought process they used to study the various possibilities should be taken as a model ;-)

IUT Cachan
ftp://gmp.iut-cachan.u-psud.fr/em6
THE report to refer to. It is huge (more than 60Mo) but a lot of information may be found , particularly on mecanics, but also on team management, choice of materials, etc...
Isia
http://www-isia.cma.fr/robotm6/
A wonderfull technical documentation! IR beacons, line sensors ...
A pioneer in that subject !

Equipe INT
www.int-evry.fr/~robot/
The report on Benedict (97 robot) quite interesting even if it is not too technical.
Follow the link "coupe 97 -> L'index"
It gives examples of budget, schedule, and some ideas...

CoreDump
http://www.chez.com/jserre/coredump/
Another INT robot, year 98. You will find their a report on all the program which was quite elaborate.
It will help you a lot if you make a robot on Linux, but the algorithms may also interest you.

La page de Sinclair
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/philippe.lucidarme/menu/robots/servobot/

A Cup competitor, specialist in robotics (among other things!) who reveals the secrets of his new robot.
L'équipe des mousquetaires
http://www.multimania.com/mousquetaireteam/
A team that looks like ours, with a technical database that is being filled.

 On line electronics catalogues :
Radiospares -Distributeur par catalogue de composants et de fournitures industrielles
http://www.radiospares.fr/
The catalogue seems very full ! With all the prices. An ideal way to have a notion of the prices.
On the other hand there is not much model maker materials (servo, ...)
Conrad Electronic - Leader européen de vente par correspondance en électronique et technique
http://www.conrad.fr/
There you will find many model maker materials. But it seems that the catalogue is not complete.
Many prices !



 Links on PIC microcontrollers :
