Event description

Description

Any self-respecting robot should be able to navigate its way around with bumping into things! From robot vacuum cleaners to self-driving cars, we are starting to see this technology appear in our everyday lives

In this course, we take the robot we built in Build a Remote Controlled Robot and add the ability to follow a line on the ground and move around the room avoiding obstacles.

This course is an ideal introduction for those looking to explore robotics for fun or as a career.


Course Details

Anatomy of a Self-Driving Robot

We will examine a working self-driving robot like the one you will build to understand the component parts.

Attaching a Sensor

We will take an existing robot and attach the sensors. We will write some Python code to take readings from the sensors.

Responding to the sensor

We will write some code to make the robot respond to sensor readings. Students will be encouraged to use a computational problem solving approach to examine strategies for directing the robot in response to the sensor readings.

Tweaking and testing

Make any changes and test the robot.

Competition time!

Compete against other student's robots (and the house robot!).
