Autonomous and Self-Driving Robotics Lab

Course Description

Get hands-on with your own autonomous robot. Use basic circuitry and frame components to construct the foundation of your 'bot. Arduino, a popular microcontroller for creating new electronic devices, brings your robot to life. Integrate sensors to let your robot understand and navigate its environment.

After you've created your take-home robot, use an advanced camera and MicroPython—a slimmed down version of Python for microcontrollers—to delve into computer vision. Now you and your robot will be able to get ahead of the self-driving curve! Acquire college-level STEM principles of hands-on mechanics, critical thinking, and collaboration—vital skills for any future robotics engineer.

Prerequisite: Ability to work in a team. Each student will be provided with an individual computer and robot, but will complete challenges in groups.
