Student Robotics – learning to use servo motors

This week we made a huge progress. We are now able to grab tokens with our arm. It was the first time that we worked with servo motors but we think we did a fine job. What is your opinion? Unfortunately, due to the corona virus, the competition of Student Robotics is now at a … Student Robotics – learning to use servo motors weiterlesen

Student Robotics – Movement

We can drive! Despite the corona shutdown: We managed to drive - but there are still problems: One of them is to mount our arm on our robot to grab the necessary tokens during the competition. Additionally, we have somewhere a problem with our robot because whenever we start our robot, sometimes one motor is … Student Robotics – Movement weiterlesen

Student Robotics – lines of code

This week we started with coding. This was one of our most difficult tasks because we have never written any code before. (Remember: Noone of our team has ever built a robot...) Luckily we got help from older students who have a lot of experience in coding. Thank you a lot! Additionally, we changed our … Student Robotics – lines of code weiterlesen

Student Robotics – mountings for our motors

Due to severe illness there were no updates to our progress on the website. We are going to catch up on the current status! Some time ago we upgraded our wooden robot with motors and fixed them with 3d printed mountings. Oh... yes.... We know... It is no masterly work. But noone of our team … Student Robotics – mountings for our motors weiterlesen

Student Robotics – airport adventures with team MAI

Student Robotics 2018/2019 - our trip to Student Robotics was quite adventurous: As travelling across countries with robots and electronics as luggage can be quite unpredictable (you might be stuck with security for ages...) we planned our trip with a lot of extra time in between. Additionally it was unclear at the time of booking … Student Robotics – airport adventures with team MAI weiterlesen

Student Robotics – robot arm

As we told you some time ago: We are building with tools that have more power! 😉 This week we upgraded our robot with an arm. With this function we are now able to collect the necessary cubes to win this competition. Furthermore we decided to code with Arduino because our kit hasn’t arrived yet … Student Robotics – robot arm weiterlesen

Student Robotics – starting to build the chassis

We started to build the chassis of our robot. As an advantage with designing our robot with a modelling program, we could measure the necessary sizes for the actually building. We decided to use wood for the material because it fulfills our requirements. Further pictures incoming as soon as possible! (author: Daniel)
