Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – striding ever closer to competition

We are now in the final stages of the design and should start printing by the 10th of January. Parallel to that the programming team has also started familiarizing itself with the Arduino programming enviroment. While we are making really good progress on finishing the robot before the 24th we sadly found out that some … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – striding ever closer to competition weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – refined design of our robot

We are now very close to finishing the design of our Sumo-Bot. Our new design features a separated space that is able to store up to 2 kg of Iron-Power. This enables us to increase the weight of our robot up to the competition regulated limit. Having a heavy robot in a small form factor gives us incredible amounts of grip, … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – refined design of our robot weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – a new design and a new plan

This week we worked on our design of the “Schüler bauen Roboter” robot. Our new plan for the interim meeting on 24 January 2019 is to go with a completely functional but not so well-designed robot in order to have more time to design and develop the final robot. We decided to do this, because … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – a new design and a new plan weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – almost finished design

After we had finished our final design this week, we bought wheels and motors for our robot. Finally we bought two 50 mm aluminum wheels with a bore of six millimeter. We also bought two 12 V, 380RPM engines which will presumably arrive on the sixth of January 2019. We paid attention to the size … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – almost finished design weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – first draft

This week we made plans for robot´s design for ' Schüler bauen Roboter Firstly we thought of using a reflection sensor and small broard wheels in order to have more grip. As a result it should be harder for our enemy to push us off the circle. Secondly we also decided to use two 400 … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – first draft weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Kick-Off

On Thursday, November 22, the kick-off for the Schüler bauen Roboter-competition at the TU Munich took place. Our school participates in the event among 10 other groups from various schools in Bavaria. The task for this year is building a robot to have robot-sumo matches where two robots try to push each other out of … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Kick-Off weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2017/2018 – Visit of the Institute for Cognitive Systems and Presentation at the adveisor event

We had an awesome Monday. We visited the TU’s institute of cognitive systems. They showed us robots that move like a human being when you touch them. They were able to detect the touches because of their special sensor skin. VR was also presented to us and they gave us the opportunity to try it … Schüler bauen Roboter 2017/2018 – Visit of the Institute for Cognitive Systems and Presentation at the adveisor event weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2017/2018 – Competition Day

Yesterday there was the competition at the Technical University of Munich. Our contestants were amongst others Team GObot, Team FOS and Team Boss. First we were introduced to the jury and the conditions for winning the competition, then the teams were given about 20 minutes to optimize the robot for the last time. Our robot … Schüler bauen Roboter 2017/2018 – Competition Day weiterlesen

Exhausting weeks

We have daily meetings now. Yesterday we did some tweaking on the eurobot robot. The repositories received an update. Furthermore the automation panel is fully functional. Today we finalized the robot for Schüler bauen Roboter. Hot glue can be your best friend. 😉 Let's hope for a great competition...
