To fully understand the basics of robotics, CR102 Robotics and Mechanics II introduces students to more robotics ideas. Students will learn to use the infrared sensor, ultrasonic sensor, photoresistors, and motors. They will also learn advanced robotics theories, including obstacle detection and avoidance. In doing so, students will use advanced programming logic such as functions. They will complete projects designed to challenge their ability to create interesting new things, as well as their problem solving skills – which in turn helps to build their logical thinking, independence, and confidence.
By the end of this course, students will:
- Will have a more in-depth understanding of everything they learned in CR101
- Learn how to view and use the serial monitor
- Learn how to use ultrasonic and light sensors to improve their rovers
