Design a robot chassis to suit Arduino Mega and Uno boards. Specifications found on Moodle. Design constraint – < 200mm x 200mm.
Students are to research/measure and design to allow room for sensor shield, motor driver board/s, sensors – ultrasonic, line detection, encoders, bump switches and ldr and to allow for different batteries to be installed – Vex and AA pack.
Presentation on encoders – What they sense, how they work, single vs quadrature.
Continue with rebuilding Vex robots to incorporate sensors.
