Monday 26 November, the final soiree pratique session of this semester takes place. The participants will demonstrate their robots in a robot-sumo competition. Robots challenge eachother in a circular playfield and the goal is to push the other robot out of the playfield. The competition will be held starting from 19h30 at the Thermotechnical Institute (Thermotechnisch Instituut) on the first floor in the Machine Room (Machinezaal). Information on how to reach this location can be found here
In this session, on October 8th, there will be an workshop on the use of the arduino microcontroller platform. We will teach how to program the microcontroller using classical and graphical programming languages. Additionally, we will show how to use basic electrical components and how to read from sensors.
Next Wednesday (29/2/2012) 19h30 is the next session of the Soirée Pratique: Build your own robot, focused on sensors. We'll give also some info on the amazeing robot competition that will take place on 23/4.
