Robots, sensors, and a Raspberry Pi – Wakefield meeting, 7th June

Meeting probably safe – killer robots unlikely to appear.

The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club will take place on Wednesday 7th June, with the subject matter being “Things to do with Robots, Sensors, and a Raspberry Pi” – with no further information given beyond that, leaving plenty of room for speculation.

The most obvious guess (given that no speaker has been mentioned) is that it’s going to be an open discussion on the things that can be done with, well, robots, sensors, and a Raspberry Pi. The clue’s in the title, really, isn’t it?

One possible suggestion, then, would be to kick off the robot revolution that will ultimately see the rise of the machines and the destruction or enslavement of the human race. However, noting that the list includes “a Raspberry Pi” – singular – I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that’s not very likely, and the ideas will be a little more fun, friendly and perhaps even entertaining.


Knowing that it’s safe to attend, therefore, should you wish to do so the meeting kicks off at 7:45pm, and takes place at:

West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close, off Walton Lane,
(A61) Barnsley Road,
WF2 6ER.

The group provides a map and directions to the venue and points out that parking is free, and there’s a bar for refreshments.

WROCC members can attend the meeting for free while visitors must pay an entry fee of £3.00, which also gets them a printed copy of the Club newsletter.

Membership is open to anyone, near or far, and costs £15.00 annually, discounted to £7.50 in the first year – and as well as free entry into meetings, that annual fee also brings a free PDF version of the newsletter delivered by email for the duration of the membership, the ability to place for sale/wanted adverts on the website and in the newsletter, and access to the Club’s internet discussion forum.

Looking ahead, the next three meeting dates are 5th July, 2nd August, and 6th September. However, only the 2nd August meeting has a subject matter lined up – “Recent Developments in RISC OS” – and that’s provisional, and therefore subject to change.
