weekly status update

We split into groups to work on our projects: One group for SAM and the other group for England. Our Student Robotics team discussed its current technical design. It will get a little finish thus it is easier to build. We did some filming for our SAM. It was quite some fun. Thank you to … weekly status update weiterlesen

Student Robotics – the final sketch

This week we updated our robot by adding a safety switch that shuts down the robot in an emergency. Furthermore we tried to find out if the "hidden compartement" of our robot is big enough to hold the hardware. In addition, our software team tried to learn the programming language by writing their first code. … Student Robotics – the final sketch weiterlesen

Student Robotics – safety first!

Just a short update: Thinking about the size of the robot is crucial. Some years ago team MAI made the mistake of installing the safety switch a few days before the competition days. As a consequence, we were too big. We had to tamper with our robot at the competition to rebuild that part of … Student Robotics – safety first! weiterlesen

Student Robotics – communication tools and simulation progress

The members of our group are living in several different villages. Thus communication tools are very important for us. This week, we're expanding our social contact from WhatsApp to Discord and Google Drive. Our software team starts by reading the Python environment. We also found the first flaws in our initial design. Either the tokens … Student Robotics – communication tools and simulation progress weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter – Waiting for the starting signal

Team Munich is currently working on other projects until we will get more information at our kick-off meeting. Next week we are going to get more informations about our project. Then we will begin with our robot by sorting things out and planning the whole thing. (author: Leo)

SAM – throwback to the assembling process

Throwback thursday! 🙂 Here are some further pictures of the assembling procedure. SAM has a height of 230 mm, a length of 325 mm and its width is 240 mm. Our team built and set up everything themselves (mainly during the summer holidays). When the casing was finished, another teammember drew the MAI logo on … SAM – throwback to the assembling process weiterlesen

Student Robotics – first technical design

Finally the time has come, on 26th October we were able to see Student Robotics 2020. Sadly we couldn’t visit the Kickstart - we watched instead the live stream together. On the following days we shared our impression and our ideas how we can realize this task. In the end we had a final idea … Student Robotics – first technical design weiterlesen
