A new robotics course in the school of computer science is teaching first year students to build and program autonomous mobile robots. The lab-based nature of the course deviates from traditional lecture-style courses by allowing students to learn quickly during the two hands-on lab sessions per week. The feedback from students indicates that this new kind of teaching environment is a refreshing and exciting change from the longer classroom lectures to which they are accustomed. The course strengthens a student’s first year programming and debugging skills through experimentation with motors, gears and various sensors. Students construct a variety of robotic designs, program them to accomplish simple tasks and then observe how they interact with other robots in the same environment. A second course is planned for the fall of 2013 which will focus on more complex programming tasks.

We are start-up producing robotic and automation kit based on Raspberry Pi or Banana Pi computer.

PiKit is unique and super powerfull and modular robotic toy for everyone.
All codes are opensource and free.

We just started Indiegogo campaign.
