DIY Robotics: Make Your Own Vehicle
In this class, participants will learn how to make how to make their own remote controlled vehicle.
Students will learn how to modify RC cars to control them with a microcontroller and add personalized features, including wireless communications, autonomous locomotion, various sensor readings and displaying. Topics include design considerations, building of chassis, programming, testing, debugging and final documented presentations. Over the sessions of the course, you will learn about the theories and concepts of electricity and electronics, as well as the fundamentals of robotics. At the end of the course, you will have created your own mechanical, electrical, and kinetic vehicle (and learned about designing, engineering and electronics).
