This site is intended for the discussion of, and sharing of robot related material. Other material may be briefly discussed, to the discretion of The Owner and Moderators.

Spammers will find they are blocked, and will be reported to appropriate authorities if they get through our defences. WE remind spammers that it is now illegal to spam in the UK, and the CAN-SPAM act of the US equally regulates such unsavoury activities. OrionRobots has not, and will not send any spam or unsolicited mail. If you receive any mail that appears to be from us, please carefully check the headers as the message has most likely been forged. You may use the above contact details to pass it on to us where we may pursue the matter further.
Users who have been granted email accounts hosted by orion are reminded to use them responsibly and within the law. The server will reject overly large emails(we do support SFTP for these users) and also any attempt to send mail to more than 10 recipients.
Although we will take measures internally to prevent such occurrences, the content of any email sent to or from this server is the responsibility of the sender.
We will not ask for or disclose any other personal information from any reader or user.
Orionrobots.co.uk is a participant in the Amazon Europe S.à r.l. Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk. We also participate in Google ad bars and Google search providing both ad revenue and a search box.
The advertising should be relevant to the article being read - if a user finds adverts on the site that are completely inappropriate, please contact us and we will investigate - we have already taken steps to ensure certain ad campaigns on Google Ads will never be shown here.
The Google Ad and search services we use may also use both Google and Doubleclick cookies to provide relevant advertising and ensure that we are correctly paid for them.
Google analytics is used from time to time to identify trends so Orionrobots can best optimize the content to visitors - for example we have used to target translations to audiences from non-English speaking regions, and we have also used this to look at loading times to ensure users have a good experience.
Above all, please enjoy the site and strive to create/maintain a co-operative and friendly community of robot-builders. If Lugnet can be the friendliest site on the net, we can at least aim for second!
Time to build your own robot! Using a Raspberry Pi with parts and some time, you can use my book to learn how to make and program a robot with automatic behaviours.
