The movie below shows the type of robot the students will design and build during their time in this class. The goal of the robot is to move up to a line on the table designated by a piece of tape, stop and deliver a ping-pong ball into the waiting cup (kind of like shooting a 3-point shot in basketball). Press on the play button below to view the action.
The robot shown here was made using the Lego-dacta Robolab building set. It was programmed using Robolab software and the program was delivered with an infrared signal from a computer. The robot uses two motors along with two sensors to accomplish its goal.
