SHS 0014 Engineering Pre-College 0 Credits
Autonomous self-navigating robots help accomplish many tasks in places that are difficult to reach by humans. Such robots should be able to recognize obstacles and alter their paths to complete the task. Students will build a robot using Arduino, an open-source platform based on a microcontroller that can be programmed from a computer. The robot will be powered by batteries mounted on a small chassis with wheels driven by motors and other electronic parts, much like a toy car. They will learn to program the Arduino to accept inputs from ultrasonic sensors in order to stop the motors on finding an obstacle.
