Robotics PSITE & Pinoy Robot Games GET INVOLVED! START NOW!
Pinoy Robot Games promotes CREATIVITY INGENUITY TEAMWORK Problem-Solving
The Pinoy Robot Games Foundation through ROBOT GAMES
Who study robotics?
Who study Robotics?
Vietnam Malaysia Indonesia Thailand Singapore Korea Japan
What to study? MECHANICS (Science & Math) or just buy a kit ELECTRONICS – very basic PROGRAMMING – very important ENVIRONMENT and INTERFACE They all work together as one.
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.
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.
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 libraries Better electronics can also improve design.
Robotics in the IT Programs
Programming Courses Study of Programming –Make robots move (instead of mere input/output) –Sense environments and build conditions –Learn state transitions and automata by example –Use loops, events, triggers from a real environment.
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).
Computer Architecture Learn computer electronics and make your own libraries (midway between C and Assembly) Study of interrupts and bus architectures Firmware programming
Areas for research Study of Algorithms Navigation and Planning Video & Audio Processing Collaborative Robots & Computing Embedded systems Real time systems
Robotics in the IT Programs
Why study robotics?
Why Study Robotics? Most Bought Robot in the world Home/Building Controls Cleaning Pools Washing Windows Robot Window Washer Robot Cleaning Pipes
How to Start? ARDUINO Mechanical Parts Motor Controller Sensors (a bit expensive) Solve Problems or Join Contests.
How to Start? (Supplies) PC Troubleshooters
How to Start? (Supplies) E-Gizmo and Alexan Locally made Arduino Boards
How to Start? (Supplies) New from Alexan (Motor and Sensor Shield)
How to Start? As a computer club Hold Seminar/Training Compile tutorials Run Contests Adapt it as a learning platform
Watch OUT!!! NATONAL and Regional SUMOBOT
Sustaining teacher training and praxis Good modeling for students Starting point for possible curriculum use and integration. Starting point for possible research and research grants
PSITE hold regional contests Pinoy Robot Games maintain a National Tally Board (for scores) and official rules of the contest. Pinoy Robot Games hold the NATIONAL CONTEST
National Contest WINNER sponsored to go to the International Robot Olympiad or Singapore Robot Games
