About Us

This blog is about the Dumont Cybernetics team and our attempt to build a robotic Hacky Racer for the 2023 Hacky Racers event.

We are a family team made up of Nathan, Katie, John and Charlotte.

We previously entered PiWars, (check out last year's blog and the year before).

John and Charlotte (7 and 4) are enthusiastic helpers and enjoy feeding the robot healthy snacks (M4 washers apparently). John got quite good at driving after taking the robot on a tour of his school and the pavements around our village.

Nathan is an electronics/embedded design engineer working on advanced humanoid robotics. His blog (nathandumont.com) is somewhat neglected since John came along but contains a history of past exploits in vintage computing and 3D printing.

Katie is an electronics engineer and freelance video content producer with recent work on Element 14 Presents. She has a history of successful mentoring in her role as a local Code Club organiser.
