IntroductionHuman Robot Interaction CurriculumBasics to robotics and programming Terrain Mapping Pet Replication Designed for secondary education and above
TechnologyFor humans by humansTechnology makes our lives easierHelps get tasks/goals completedEverything from getting into space to cleaning the floor.
RoboticsAutomation is the keyRepetitive tasksIncomparable precision Artificial intelligence is rapidly progressingThe three DsDirtyDullDangerous
The InteractionWith increasing robotic technology, the need to bridge the gap between humans and robots also increases.
Need for basic understanding of robotic principles, control, and application.
Human Robot Interaction Curriculum Build a core foundation of robotic principlesEngineering Design ProcessCreative and Critical ThinkingRobotic TechnologiesProgrammingSensor Incorporation
Application of Core
Develop an understanding for how robotics are used.
Be able to use what was learned and apply to real life engineering situations.
Terrain Mapping with robotsApplied in situations where humans lack the precision and/or the environmental sustainability to properly carry out the procedure.e.g. Mars
Pet Replication with robotsDesign of pet behavior replicationUsing more advanced programming theories to produce AI type resultsRandom motions and reaction to stimuli.
IRobot CreateBased off the IRobot RoombaFully programmable robotVariety of sensorsBump, Infrared, Cliff, Wheel dropAll Movements can be controlledPerfect tool for application of a basic robotics curriculum
Programming LanguageJAVAStraight forwardEasy to use and learn
Used to set up basic libraries specific for the Create.
Final ProductA curriculum that teaches the basics of robotics and the application of the technology and theories usedAllows for the understanding of how humans and robots interactAllows for students to gain an interest in science in technology
