Awesome Robotics!

05 February 2018
As part of their BTEC Extended Diploma in Information Technology course, Unit 24: “Awesome Robotics 2018 Challenge”, second year students were tasked with creating a remote control robot to drive around a pre-defined course.

Students were given a Microcontroller board, some motors with wheels and were allowed to design their robots from scratch. They had to learn how to programme the controller board and develop their own algorithms for control and speed. Students then competed against each other for the fastest time around the course, with Lewis Culleton taking first place by 2.35 seconds ahead of his nearest rival.
