After giving RobotBASIC away for many years, I have decided not to spend
a lot of time updating the webpage. I am sure there will be many more
in Servo and perhaps other magazines too, but I will not be spending my
Senior years constantly updating the site. Assuming I am still around, you
should be able to email me at RobotBASIC@yahoo.com if you have questions.
Three articles have been published in Circuit Cellar Magazine.
1. October 2013 Robot Simulation Part 1 by Jeff Bachiochi
2. November 2013 Robot Simulation Part 2 by Jeff Bachiochi
3. March 2014 Reducing Development Time
One article has been published in Nuts and Volts.
1. August 2012 Custom Security System
