This program is designed to introduce students to robotics within a hands-on four (4) college credit course, ET 375 (Introduction to Robotics), to robotic construction, programming, operation, and basic design theory. Throughout the summer, students will work in teams to design, construct, and program autonomous mobile robots by learning and using the C Programming Language within the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Robotics System among other components. Robotics projects will include behaviors such as line-following, random roaming with obstacle avoidance using IR senors and ultrasonic range finding sensors, and rotate until a path is clear using the data from the ultrasonic range finders.
