About this minor

Summary

Learning Outcomes

The objective of this module is to program a Cherokey robot in Arduino language to go from point A to point B, avoiding all obstacles in its path and being as fast as possible. It will have to cross the circuit first independently and then with a Bluetooth command.

The evolution of sensor technology and communication protocols has made it possible to realize connected objects whose application domains are in full expansion.
This teaching unit aims to provide theoretical and practical bases for the development of connected objects and more particularly the development of the Cherokey 4WD arduino mobile robot. It is a versatile mobile robot that is compatible with popular microcontrollers such as the arduino UNO, arduino MEGA 2560, Romeo, etc.

This course will be divided into three parts:

  • A first step will be devoted to understanding how the robot works, discovering the Arduino language and its functions.
  • A second part is dedicated to the programming the Cherokey Robot and to find the function that will allow the robot to avoid obstacles.
  • The last step will be to use the bluetooth function and the camera to move the robot.
