  1. 1. Robotics Slideshare Resource <ul><li>This SlideShare Presentation contains </li></ul><ul><li>a set of power points separated into lessons </li></ul><ul><li>the ‘you tube’ clips you will need at the appropriate juncture </li></ul><ul><li>For ‘The Robotics Challenge Unit’ so you can keep everything together and easily accessible. </li></ul><ul><li>By: Ms. Thomas </li></ul>
  2. 2. Lessons 1 & 2
  3. 3. Robotics! It’s great fun. What will we be doing? -Finding out about robots. -Designing , building and programming robot to participate in a safety challenge at the BRC. -Preparing for the Bundaberg Robotics Challenge.
  4. 4. Lets work out some rules! <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No mishandling any materials especially the NXT units and laptops. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Notify teacher straight away of problems with equipment </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No food or drinks around any electronics </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No building non-class related structures with the Legos </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Let’s look at the Robotics Challenge Website! <ul><li>Enter the URL address: </li></ul><ul><li>http://roboticschallenge.weebly.com/ </li></ul><ul><li>Take a minute or two to have a quick look around the place! </li></ul>
  6. 6. . <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What is a Robot? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are examples of a robot? </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. What do you think a robot is? <ul><li>The internet site www.dictionary.com defines a robot as “A mechanical device that sometimes resembles a human and is capable of performing a variety of often complex human tasks on command or by being programmed in advance”. </li></ul>
  8. 8. A robot is essentially made up of five basic components: <ul><ul><li>A movable physical structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some sort of motor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A sensor system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A power supply </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A computer “brain” that controls all of these elements </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. . <ul><li>“ A robot is a device that is built to independently perform actions and interact with its surroundings.” </li></ul>

  25. 25. . <ul><ul><ul><li>Moving: The robot must be able to control some set of actuators to move how and when we want it to. We must be able to place the robot anywhere we want. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Sensing: The robot must be able to perceive its environment through sensors obstacles to avoid, and objects of interest that we want it to interact with. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Plan/Act: The robot must be able to make decisions using its processor based on it’s sensors and feed them to it’s actuators to be able to move. </li></ul></ul></ul>
