560.002 Do-it Lab Mechanical Engineering (1SH P, WS )

You have no prior experience with robots but would like to work with them?

If so, this hands-on project will enable you to build and control your own robot.

You will use Python to program intelligent navigation or even learning strategies. 

At the end of the practical project, we discuss your achievements and what you have learnt.

You can work on your own or build a team of up to three people at most. We provide a student lab with all-in-one-pcs prepared to code in Python on an ubuntu os.

The project is based on code examples, wiki pages and video tutorials for non-experts.
