The Big Daddy construction came as an idea on how to build a four wheel robot that would use a differential for driving. In this playlist we show how to clearly separate the modules of the robot on front/read/middle how to build a differential drive how transfer power from motors to the wheel with a gear system and a differential different ways to position the motors and brick on a final construciton and finally and probably most importantly -> what is a differential lock and how to implement it Instructions for building the robot are given below each video and a few tasks are available for solving
Moving in a grid of objects. That's the large challenge of the World Robotics Olympiad 2015 Junior-High 2015. It's called Treasure Hunt. In this playlist we present an example solution to it. In the first video we would build a robot that can collect the boxes (treasures). The robot would also be able to move around the treasures.
A playlist presenting a sequence of videos for solving the WRO Elementary 2013. We present arrays, menus, counting colors and many more.
Videos for the World Robotics Olympiad 2014, Junior-High competition. We loved it because, let's be honest, it is about space, and don't we all love topics connected with space.
This is a playlist with explanation and description of the FIRST LEGO League Trash Trek 2015 solution. The robot is the FLLCasts Competition robot and the attachments are build by the ELM team. These are example solutions with good tips and tricks along with some interesting strategies and videos directly from the team.
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.
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.
One of the smoothest and most precise way to follow a line. It is also quite fast. The whole algorithm could be configured easily depending on the conditions in the room. Proportional Algorithm: This algorithm for following lines is called Proportional. It proportionally rotates the motors depending on how far from the line the robot is. If the robot is right above the line the proportion between the two motor is equal and they just continue forward. But as the robot looses the line, the algorithm would return it as quickly as possible proportionally to how far away the robot is.
