Tech United Soccer robot made from LEGO MINDSTORMS
Guest blogger Hans Odenthal share's with us an amazing project built by his son.
This was built by my son Bram, 17yo from Trevianum in Sittard School in the Netherlands. It was for a study project that every student has to do at the end of the secondary school. That can be any topic and since he wants to start a career as software engineer, he choose a technical subject. Within borders, you can define your own project that of course need to be approved by the school.
He was inspired during a tech event and he saw the real robots. Since my company was a sponsor of these robots, it was easy to make an appointment to meet the real robots and to learn how the real one works.
It is programmed in the normal EV3 programming environment, my son and I gives lessons in that. So programming was relatively easy for him (I helped him a bit with the PID controller).
Future plans? Not sure yet. Maybe I’ll take over from here and will try to improve the software and add more functionality. Meanwhile, click here to view the Flickr page with more pictureshttps://www.flickr.com/photos/129513068@N06/sets/72157678705135431/
