Course Detail: PER901 - Engineering Robotics Exploration: Swarm Robotics

Learn to master the skill of achieving a robotic task with multiple robots!


Participants collaborate on robot teams that explore the strategy of "swarm robotics", where multiple robots work in coordination to achieve a goal. Learn to master the skill of mixing an autonomous robot with a remote control robot to achieve a challenge. Participants will use the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 autonomous robot and the Pitsco TETRIX robot. They will strategize on construction, programming, attachments, and robot manipulation in preparation for the week's mini-challenge. Along the way, participants will hear about engineering. The camp welcomes participants with a range of robot experience. Guided by a professional engineer and a technology teacher, the instructors encourage hands on exploration of new skills as they share from their own experience.
