Introduction to Autonomous Robots

Work with autonomous robots to navigate an obstacle course. Participants will learn the basics of robots including: coding basic robot movement, using a color sensor to detect and follow a line, and object detection with an ultrasonic sensor. Other topics include gear ratios and how to use a robot to gather and display information such as distance, time, and speed.

No robotics experience required.

Instructor: Elmer Santos, LTU Robofest Assistant Director
