Autonomous and Self-Driving Robotics Lab

Course Description

Get hands-on with the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 robot, the world's most advanced system for embedded visual computing. Start building with metal and electricity to construct the circuitry and power that will bring your robot to life. Once the nuts and bolts of the robot are assembled, begin coding with C++ and learn computing with Linux fundamentals.

After you get your c-legs and have a finished robot, pit crews must overcome a series of challenges: troubleshooting self-made circuitry, managing sensors, and leveraging computer vision to triumph in varied tasks of engineering and problem solving. Acquire college-level STEM principles of hands-on mechanics, critical thinking, and collaboration—vital skills for any future robotics engineer.

Ability to work in a team. Each student will be provided with an individual computer and will share robotics equipment.

In this course, your student will:

  • Build the Jetson robot
  • Utilize the Robot Operating System libraries
  • Code with C++
  • Use the NVidia Jetson development board and Linux OS
  • Gain college-level mechanics, critical thinking, and collaboration skills

Your student will take home:

  • Project files
  • Online college portfolio
