ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 7 Oct 2019

Standard

The last private session before Fadhlan is flying to Russia, OMGGFGG!!!

IMG_2532

today we had successfully tested SNAPBOT II to do 2 tasks: self-navigating while mapping radar and self-navigating while mouse mapping

some of the results

SNAPBOT I (upper) will stay in Indonesia while SNAPBOT II will fly to Russia and make Indonesia proud! We are only allowed to bring one robot so we make SNAPBOT II dual-functioning πŸ˜‰

THE SNAPBOTS! πŸ˜‰

good luck Fadhlan and SNAPBOT! MAKE INDONESIA PROUD! πŸ˜‰ ❀ ❀ ❀

Just a few days left! We’ve got to work HARDDDDD!!! we finished the class last night and going to have another private class tonight and we just left the room like this πŸ˜€

IMG_2296

Listing things to bring and also we need to shop some more stuff

IMG_2355

the tense is getting higher so we have to LAUGH MORE and EAT MORE πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

IMG_2366 IMG_2367

mouse reading is giving the expected result πŸ™‚

the mapping result

we have more videos than pics, just checkout our Flickr and YouTube for videos πŸ™‚

IMG_2376

we worked 3+ straight hours πŸ˜€

SNAPBOTS – Road to Russia – Part #6

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Electronics Project – 21 Sept 2019

We’re finishing Josh Smart Aquarium Project πŸ™‚

IMG_1546

Today we’re adding LED to display the ultrasonic reading and status

the code

IMG_1553

testing the object detection and distance

IMG_1554

and then adding a counting down info and the status of the water pump πŸ™‚

well done, Josh, good luck with the competition πŸ˜‰

the saga continues… SNAPBOTS Road to Russia πŸ™‚ this is the room before the saga started πŸ˜€

IMG_1186

we’re setting up camera to capture our activity today πŸ˜€

IMG_1185

IMG_1187 IMG_1188

lots of things to do, especially hacking mouse chip to read robot movements but we’re still struggling with reading the data because we haven’t got the correct data sheet 😦

IMG_1189

SNAPBOT II is powered with Arduino Mega and navigates really well. What we are going to do is adding mouse reading and broadcast it via bluetooth to display a map on a laptop/PC

IMG_1190

hacking the mouse is not as easy as we thought πŸ˜€

IMG_1200

well if what we’ve been doing is easy, we wouldn’t have come this far πŸ˜‰

IMG_1201

IMG_1203

we also added a potentiometer to SNAPBOT I to control the PWM so we can adjust the speed of the wheels

IMG_1204

done!

IMG_1206

Fayza, Fadhlan’s older sister is also in the same competition this year πŸ™‚ Good luck all! πŸ™‚

IMG_1209

we’re tired and work is still piling up but we won’t give up! gear up until the D-Day! πŸ˜‰

Road to Russia Saga continues πŸ˜‰ We’re working on SNAPBOT I and SNAPBOT II today πŸ˜€

IMG_0667

SNAPBOT I

IMG_0684

SNAPBOT II

IMG_0685

The first thing we do is interfacing an optical mouse to Arduino

IMG_0668

we will put this on SNAPBOT II so we can get the trail of the movement by reading the x and y of the mouse

IMG_0669

we have to carefully check the pin out and datasheet to make sure which port goes to where πŸ˜€

IMG_0670

we use wires to check if we can read the data

IMG_0672 IMG_0673

we print the address but not yet getting the correct reading

IMG_0674 IMG_0675

the x y reading

IMG_0676

checking the connection and ports

IMG_0677

IMG_0679 IMG_0680

and then start soldering

IMG_0681 IMG_0682

IMG_0683

but we have written the code to read x and y from the mouse, and also the code to display the reading into some movement trails like thisΒ Β Screen Shot 2019-09-09 at 17.24.19

still got LOTS of work to do but we won’t stop! we’ll be back soon for more update and progress!
