Participating in Schüler bauen Roboter 2019/2020

Hey! As every year we are going to participate in the robotics competition „Schüler bauen Roboter“. We are currently a brand new team of 6 members aged between 13 and 15. Also we are looking forward to getting our problem’s description in November. The team is excited to start this round! (author: Leonie)

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Meeting at the university

On 24 January, we were at the Technical University Munich. We arrived before the interm meeting begins so we can take this to an advantage and we were testing our bot. sadly, the bot was driving out of the border. We have to take option on the sensors because the reflection of the white line … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Meeting at the university weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Working on the software

This week we made big improvements and finished the hardware successfully. We have been planning to use the MAI logo instead of the DVD logo on the top of the robot. We ordered 2 kg of iron powder to increase the weight of the robot on the competition day. Since the motors and the wheels … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Working on the software weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Finalizing the robot

This week we successfully finished the design of the “Schüler bauen Roboter 2018-2019” robot and printed it out over the course for a few days. We have also begun to wire up some of the components. We are hoping to finish the hardware by Friday, so we can put our primary focus on the software … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – Finalizing the robot weiterlesen

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
