Overview

In this workshop you will build a robotic arm completely from scratch and then program it using an Arduino and Raspberry-Pi. The session will alternate between learning  and building,  and through this process give you an understanding of modern robotics.

By the end of this session, you will:

  • Have a basic understanding of programming an Arduino and connecting various sensors and motors together

  • An overview of Raspberry-Pi

  • An intuitive understanding of electricity and current

  • Knowledge of basic electrical components like breadboards, resistors, capacitors, potentiometers, LEDs, servo motors and PWM s
