Student Robotics – first python experiences

This week our software team wrote their first line of code in python. Unfortunately we discovered new important problems we didn’t notice. Another point is we didn’t upgrade our model - hopefully we will have done it next week. The manufacture of our robot is starting. If everything works as intended, it will be a modular, wooden robot. We are still … Student Robotics – first python experiences weiterlesen

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

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

Gold and Silver….

On 26th October, the official rules of “Student Robotics 2020” were released. The game mode is called “Two Colours”. The game challenges us to score points by collecting coloured tokens from on and around a raised platform in the centre of the arena. After collecting them we should place these tokens within our scoring zone, … Gold and Silver…. weiterlesen
