Robotics/Mechatronics WorkshopMarch 18th - 22nd, 2019
A team of professional engineers fom Haply who have put together robotics workshops for students to get them interested in mechatronics and programming have been invited to Dawson. They will coach students, starting with basic microcontrollers and up through motor control. Students will also program an Arduino-based “robot” in pairs.
Two instructors from Haply Robotics introduced students from both Computer Science Technology and Pure and Applied Science to programming with mechatronics using haptic devices. The students programmed a maze game, where a haptic device was used to move through the maze. The device would indicate through touch when the item hit a wall. Concepts introduced during the seminar included components in physics and physics engines, along with pair programming.
