SPACE CAMP ROBOTICS
ROBOTICS COMMAND AND CONTROL
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
Program robots to interact with the world using a variety of
sensors and motors
