Hi, my name is Huub van Niekerk, MSc Embedded Systems
 * Specialised in Systems, Control and Robotics.
 * Open source consultant

Thank you for visiting my website where I blog about my experiments with embedded systems and robotics.

New videos are published frequently on my Youtube channel (please subscribe to it!). You can also follow me on Twitter (with active link to video) & Instagram (with passive link to video to be copy/pasted). Flickr is used for pictures (more yet to be moved from Google).
If you don't have an account on any of those, just bookmark this website (or add to your favourites) and visit weekly: my blog with introduction to the videos and playlist is weekly updated, generally at Friday.

Unless otherwise stated, pictures and videos are my (c) Copyright.

For contact, you can email me. If you're interested to have another robot or embedded board tested by me, please contact me.

Please support my blog by making a (small) donation. It is very much appreciated.
