1. Principles and practices

This week I worked on defining my final project idea and started to getting used to the documentation process. I read the Fab Charter.

Description and sketch of final project


As I have written before, I teach at the Technical High School. I wanted to make a mobile robot with the goal of attracting students to robotics and programming. It would be an educational robot that students can use.

In the picture below is the idea for the final project. It’s a mobile robot that I might call ForkBot. The idea is that it can be programmed to perform various tasks (e.g. cargo transport, line tracking…). It would be compatible with arduino software. I might also plug in some wireless module so it can be controlled via a smartphone. It would be equipped with various sensors such as ultrasonic sensor, line sensor. The case would mostly be 3D printed, some parts maybe even laser cut.
