Design Garage: Bugbots I an introduction to the world of BEAM robotics

10am-1pm - FPRD 204 (Forest Products Building)
BEAM is the acronym for Biology, Engineering, Aesthetics, Mechanics and refers to a style of robotic creation that relies on simple circuits, and when possible recycles technology and uses solar power. After a brief introduction to BEAM robotics, in this project we will work on two projects:
1) Building our own versions of a HEX bug and a maze to race them in.
2) Designing and constructing “Herbie” light-following bugbots that follow light and whose aesthetics will take inspiration from the insect world. Upon completion of the Bugbots, we will create an environment for them to interact in and create a documentary video of the process and product. No electrical, robotics or design experience is necessary for this workshop, but sharing existing knowledge is welcomed.
