Autonomous and Self-Driving Robotics Lab

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.

In this course, you will:

  • ​Learn the fundamentals of electrical engineering
  • Explore computer vision and autonomous robotics
  • Code with Arduino and MicroPython
  • Build an Arduino-powered robot
  • Gain college-level mechanics, critical thinking, and collaboration skills

Your tuition includes:

  • Personalized learning + take-home project
  • Arduino-powered robot
  • College-ready digital portfolio
  • University campus experience + meals and housing
  • iD Small Class Guarantee™
  • 12 exclusive online iD Master Classes ($300 value)
