How much time in this class is spent in the laboratory versus in lecture?
This class emphasizes lab time. The goal is to have you walk away from this course with a true introduction to robotics from both a theoretical and hands-on programming perspective. In general, you can expect a 45 min to 1hr lecture introducing each project and the rest of your time will be spent getting the systems to work.
Can I work in a group for the projects?
Yes, you will be working in groups of 2 or 3 on each project. However, everyone must turn in their own write up (i.e. you cannot write your report with your group members). Please see the Assignments page for more details.
Are there any exams in this class?
Is there a required textbook?
Can I take the hardware home to work on it outside of the lab?
No, sorry, we need to make sure that all the Bioloid kits stay in Tech CG50 at all times.
