Our initiative is to create a robot that picks up litter in large areas after big events. We want it to help clean the environment and reduce human labour. We will target event planners or urban planners. Our objective or goal is that by the end of this year our robot/program will be able to identify objects and approach them. With this in mind we started our project. First we had learned how to code, so that we could become familiar with different coding languages. We then learned how to put the robot together, so we could use it as a scale model. After that we learned how to manipulate the code of the robot, so that we could make the camera communicate with the robotic chassis.
The video summary submitted includes the three students talking about the project along with two videos from our weekend workshops. One involved working with robotic car kits to discover how they are programmed and how that programming can be manipulated. The other dealt with working with a tracking program on a camera that will be integrated into our robot.
