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

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

SAM – improving the sensor data

Two weeks ago a physics and geology teacher of our school came to visit us and to take a look at our project. He gave us a lot of input which we will now try to put into action in order to further improve SAM. Currently we are still trying to boost some of the … SAM – improving the sensor data 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

Designing the hardware of SAM

In order to start the whole process of designing SAM, we first had to agree on which sensors to use in the project and then we assigned different tasks to our team members. In order to design a model of the casing we used Fusion 360 by Autodesk. The programme allowed us to virtually depict … Designing the hardware of SAM weiterlesen

Eurobot – holiday/vacation progress

Besides preparing for school, we used our free time during the autumn holidays for further progressing on our bots. First of all we want to thank Henrik, a Eurobot referee, who visited us a few days ago and gave us very helpful feedback on our robots. Last week we finally carved out where exactly we … Eurobot – holiday/vacation progress weiterlesen
