8 Who study Robotics? Vietnam Malaysia Indonesia Thailand Singapore KoreaJapan
9 What to study? MECHANICS (Science & Math) or just buy a kit ELECTRONICS – very basicPROGRAMMING – very importantENVIRONMENT and INTERFACEThey all work together as one.
10 Why study robotics?Robotics can be an end – for engineers BUT they need to program!It can be a means to learn programming, embedded systems, operating systems, real-time systems, etc.
11 Do you need to know mechanics? To star it, NO!Use a pre-built or follow a “how-to” pattern of building and focus on programming.To improve, YES!Change Tires, change body, change structure, etc.
12 Do you need to know electronics? NO! USE Pre-built ones.YES, the basics of electricity and electronics to ADD to the circuit.For advanced programming, and building of your own librariesBetter electronics can also improve design.
13 Robotics in the IT Programs Is it another subject?NO!
14 Programming Courses Study of Programming Make robots move (instead of mere input/output)Sense environments and build conditionsLearn state transitions and automata by exampleUse loops, events, triggers from a real environment.
15 Network & Communication (Multiple robot controllers) Use of bluetooth, Xbee, RF, etc to control them remotely Use of Wifi or Ethernet shields Add web and network programming for IP-based robots (cameras, home controls, etc).
16 Computer Architecture Learn computer electronics and make your own libraries (midway between C and Assembly)Study of interrupts and bus architecturesFirmware programming
17 Areas for research Study of Algorithms Navigation and Planning Video & Audio ProcessingCollaborative Robots & ComputingEmbedded systemsReal time systems
18 Robotics in the IT Programs Is it another subject?NO!
