SC 2016 Semilab: Advanced Robotics

by Helmut Strey

This semilab is for students who already have some experience with robotics and with programming. The topic for this year is again autonomous navigation. However, instead of GPS, this year we will be using a combination of orientation (IMU) sensor, ultrasonic sensors, and Bluetooth-based beacons to build a robot capable of navigating an indoor race track and avoiding obstacles in its way.

Students should have some experience in programming in C, C++, or Java. Some experience with electronics/microcontrollers such as Arduino is also desired.
