Students will design and develop different types of robots that can launch projectiles in a complex battlefield. The robots are required to cooperate with each other and work together to attack the base of the opponent and at the same time protect their own base. Students will form a team to participate in the RoboMaster 2019 Robotics Competition and compete against other teams from all over the world using their self-build robots.
Students will learn robot related technical disciplines including machine vision, embedded system design, mechanical control, inertial navigation, human-computer interaction, etc. They will also learn how to become a good team player.
Students will have hands-on experience in building robots that requires comprehensive application of their engineering knowledge. They will be able to acquire self-learning skill and problem solving skill, and value the importance of teamwork.
Students are required to build their robots from scratch. They need to self-learn all the robot related technical disciplines. Students from the Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science sub-groups need to understand the design constraints of the other sub-groups and cooperate with each other to work out feasible solutions.
A good project should allow students to apply their knowledge as well as their creativity, and provide opportunity for them to acquire new knowledge as well as reinforce previously acquired knowledge.
