SPACE CAMP ROBOTICS

PROGRAM

ROBOTICS COMMAND AND CONTROL

PROGRAM

Trainees learn how to use robotics technologies to solve real-world problems. Hands-on sessions in robot chassis design and building algorithms, remote-control design and operation and aerial drone operations make for the core of the Program. Trainees focus on teamwork as they learn what it is like to engineer and design robots on land, in the air and underwater. The week culminates with trainees competing to complete tasks on a Challenge Table using robots they spent the week building, programming and testing.

ACTIVITIES OF ROBOTICS COMMAND AND CONTROL PROGRAM

1

Program robots to interact with the world using a variety of
sensors and motors

2

Design and build a robotic chassis

3

Master maintaining satellite connections and managing
wireless signals in order to control and pilot robots on the
Challenge Table

4

Choose from optional lessons such as building robotic
attachments, programming with sensors and data functions,
or using both tactile and touch-less Human Interface Devices

5

Use the binary number system and basic logic functions to
understand how machines “think”

6

Remotely fly quadcopters

7

Design, build, and pilot underwater robots, using the
SeaPerch ROV system
