Build a Pololu Sumobot
Sun, March 26, 2017, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
In this workshop participants will assemble and program a Pololu 32U4 Zumo bot. The Pololu Zumo 32U4 robot is a versatile tracked robot based on the Arduino-compatible ATmega32U4 MCU. Some soldering is required and we will provide the tools necessary to construct this little bot.
Our friends at Pololu have given us a really good discount on this workshop which allows us to provide this for $25 less than you can buy one from their site. It's a very good deal, and fun to build.
It is recommended to bring a laptop so you can learn to program your bot, but if you don't have one, we have a PC or two that people can take turns programming their Zumo.
We will work until 5:00pm at which time we'll have a dinner break and if any participants want to hang around we'll have some sumobot competitions with our bots.
To see more about what this little bot is capable of, check out this video link:
