Welcome to the Centre for Research and Applied Learning in Science's third S.M.A.R.T Camp on Robotic Vehicles!

In this two-day camp, we will explore actuators, electronics and computer algorithms that make robotic vehicles. We will assemble three different models of robotic vehicles from scratch, and program it to function using Arduino programming language.

The three different models include:

  1. Bluetooth Robotic Vehicle;
  2. Line Tracking Robotic Vehicle; and
  3. WiFi-Controlled Robotic Vehicle.

This camp is open to both students and public with a foundation in mathematics and science of at least secondary 2 level. At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion.

CRADLE S.M.A.R.T. Camp – Robotic Vehicles

DAY 1

The camp provides a hands-on introduction to the basic technologies used in robotics:

 

 

  • Programming the Microcontroller to provide basic functions such as to control the actuators (i.e. simple motions).
  • Electromechanical actuators (such as Servo, DC motors and Motor drivers).
  • Electronics needed to drive actuators.
  • Program a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for an android device.
  • Use the GUI to control a self-assembled Robotic Vehicle via Bluetooth Communications.
DAY 2
  • Introduction to Infrared Sensors.
  • Program and control a self-assembled Robotic Vehicle to track and follow black lines using Infrared sensors.
  • Introduction to WiFi shield and how it can be connected to the Arduino Uno board.
  • Connect the WiFi shield on the Arduino board to the router for communication.
  • Setting up a Wifi camera for visual feedback of the vehicle.
  • Program and control the Robotic Vehicle through WiFi communications with a Serial Monitor
  • Computational and systems thinking will be required to assemble and program the final prototype from its constituent components.

Lunch is provided on both days.
