Advanced Robotics students will learn robot control concepts and try them out on Arduino based robot vehicles. The course uses an extended mBot kit for each student. The mBot is a robot vehicle that can be remote controlled or autonomous. It is programmed in Arduino Sketch, which is a type of C-like programming language. The emphasis of the course will be on robot programming - almost every day there will be a new task to be understood, programmed and tested. Students, who complete the course, may take home the robot at the end of the course and can continue learning more about robotics.
