Location: ESAT 02.58

During the past sessions you have assembled your very own sumo-robot.
In this next session you are going to program it!

We'll give a short presentation on programming strategies and will provide a basic working Arduino tempate from which you can start building your own advanced control strategy.

We'll also provide a sumo field to test your robot.

Do you wish to participate in the competition and are starting from scratch?
No problem, we'll help you out with a standard sumo robot frame + motors/sensors.

Date: 
Monday, February 22, 2016 - 19:30

Last semester we got the sensors and motors of our sumo robot operational, so now it is time to create the frame or "skeleton" of our robot.

In this session, we will provide CAD files for creating your own standard frame which you can use to build your own customized frame. We will use the lasercutters at FabLab to create all the necessary components and afterwards assemble the parts.
