Robotics will become an important part of the 21st century’s life and infrastructure. There is a need to educate the next generation of scientists so they may understand the challenges and opportunities related to robotics. We will present student projects that interact with the environment through sensors and then to act upon that sensory information:
- WiFi remote controlled robot swarm (students can drive them)
- WiFi remote controlled balloon swarm (students can interact with them)
- WiFi controlled robot car developed by STEM students
- A Raspberry Pi controlled interactive plant
The hardware uses for these projects are based on esp8266 and Raspberry PI3.
