7 Cat Robotics Q3Instructor: Julian, C.
Robotics Engineering basic course that explores the use of sensors to accomplish robotic tasks. Design challenge ends the course using knowledge learned.
This class meets 3 times per week: Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.
- Using Sensors
- Robotic Engineering 2
This week, your team will wrap up the quarter by submitting your "Robot Butler" project for grading. Were you able to keep up with the St. Bernard?
This week, you will be introduced to your final project which will allow you to use all the sensors you learned to program. This project asks you to take care of the "Mini's" mansion and their 200 lb St. Bernard! Are you up for the challenge?
This week, your team will learn to use and program the touch sensor and ultrasonic sensor to avoid and detect obstacles. When would you use each?
This week, we will explore the use of a light sensor to make your robots follow a line. What else could you use a light sensor for?
This week, your team will use your first sensor, the sound sensor, to make your robot use it's surroundings to react.
This week, you will begin your first activity, "Full Speed Ahead". Use the advanced programming palette to program your robots to simulate the Mars Rover.
This week we will be teaming up into groups of 2. You will be issued your kits and begin using your "taskbot" to perform different activities while exploring the use of sensors.
Welcome to a new quarter at WMS! I hope you are as excited as I am to explore robotics engineering technologies!
How could you make a robot more aware of it's surroundings?Posted by Charles Julian on 11/16/2016 12:34:53 PM
