This is a course for following lines that are crossed with other lines and have gaps. We start with a simple introduction of our strategy, the programming that is used and how it follows a State Machine programming pattern. The idea of the course is for students to learn how to program robots to follow a line and to use mode advance state machine programming.
The idea behind our new 14-session course (1 session weekly) is to develop a solution to the Conway Game of Life where the robots would actually play the game. Students will construct the robots by instructions and lots of imagination. Initial programs will be provided by us and modified by students. The course is for students and classes of students. It is for Computer Science, Computer History, Robotics, Math. Different programming languages will be used for after class activities and solutions to problems.
