Wheeled Robots with Raspberry Pi & Python Basics
- Basic Computer Usage (Typing, Internet Browsing)
In this course, students will be introduced to wheeled robots, having as an example the Mars Rover and its parts, and gain information about the basic function of different robot parts and particularly the motors. Then, simple assembly information about how to attach motors and wheels to the robot will be presented. Afterwards, students will be introduced to the programming environment and learn how to use variables in the Python programming language, and see how to use simple functions to control their robots in a virtual environment.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners in Robotics-AI
- Beginner Python Developers
- Robotics Hobbyists
