Labs on mobile robots: "Pràctica a l'UJI"

[20-01-2017]

During these months, we are collaborating in the program "Pràctica a l'UJI", an iniciative organized by the Jaume I University in which small groups high school students and their teachers come to the university to learn about the university and the different studies we impart.
This year we are giving them a two hours lab on autonomous mobile robots.

As we can see, the teachers were also very interested in the activities.

New robots in the Lab

[05-12-2016]

We have just received in our Lab a Bioloid. It's a hobbyist and educational robot kit produced by the Korean robot manufacturer Robotics. The BIOLOID platform consists of components and small, modular servomechanisms called the AX-12A Dynamixels, which can be used in a daisy-chained fashion to construct robots of various configurations, such as wheeled, legged, or humanoid robots. The Robot is programmed with RoboPlus - C language based software solution.

We can see a demo of one of its application:

Participation in the program "Conecta con la Ciencia"

[08-11-2016]

As every year, our group participates in the program "Conecta con la Ciencia", a programa organized by the Jaume I University with the aim of approaching science to high school students. On tuesday we were in Teruel with our robots and next weeks we'll be in Vinaroz and Sagunto.

And finally in Sagunto (11/28/2016):
