PHY235: Robotics Workshop

Gustavus Adolphus College

January 2013

Dr. Thomas Huber

Course Description

Students will work in teams to design, build, and program robots. At the end of this hands-on course, these robots will compete in a public tournament. The students will design and construct the robots from provided parts (Legos), will choose appropriate sensors and effectors, interface them to on-board computers, and program the robots to compete effectively in the course tournament. Students will be evaluated on their ability to communicate their team's design, through design presentations, demonstrations, and supporting documents.
