ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 16 Sept 2019

Standard

the saga continues… SNAPBOTS Road to Russia 🙂 this is the room before the saga started 😀

IMG_1186

we’re setting up camera to capture our activity today 😀

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 😀

IMG_1200

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

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 🙂 Good luck all! 🙂

IMG_1209

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

ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 22 Aug 2019

Standard

Two days before Young Scientist Competition coaching to prepare the contestants for the competition in Yakuts, Russia next October! 🙂

IMG_9300

We’re making sure the robot is in the good shape, we test and optimize the code

IMG_9303 IMG_9302

IMG_9304 IMG_9305

we secure cables and the mounting

IMG_9306

and Fadhlan made this great poster 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 22 May 2019

Standard

Our preparation for Young Scientist Competition 2019 in Russia this December 😉

IMG_1734 IMG_1735

Our target today is to debug the wheels and integrate the bluetooth module to the robot

IMG_1739 IMG_1740

Testing ultrasonic sensor readings

IMG_1743

adding bluetooth module

IMG_1749

upload the code to send ultrasonic sensor readings via bluetooth to Processing App on laptop

IMG_1750

IMG_1754

data readings to be sent

IMG_1751

alright! succesfully sending ultrasonic readings to processing and save it to a file to be converted as a map 😉

IMG_1753

Lots of work that we love! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 25 March 2019

Standard

Our quest today is to test bluetooth module to connect the robot with a pc for a radar visualisation 😉

IMG_0181 IMG_0184

IMG_0166

Plus Fadhlan needs to re-layout the robot to make space for bluetooth module

IMG_0167

IMG_0190

testing ultrasonic sensor

IMG_0170

the bluetooth module

IMG_0171

Arduino is connected to this laptop via bluetooth

 IMG_0174

IMG_0175

and this is when the Arduino sending ultrasonic sensor readings via bluetooth to the laptop

IMG_0178

IMG_0180

and then save it to the file 🙂 Yes, all targets accomplished today 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 14 March 2019

Standard

Our target today is to test radar readings of the robot

IMG_7558 IMG_7565

Instead of using 3 ultrasonic sensors we decide to use a micro servo and one ultrasonic sensor for the robot to navigate and reading the environment, to simplify the inputs and the data processing

IMG_7559

Fadhlan has to make sure every components have been placed correctly and working well

IMG_7560

The ultrasonic sensor is still not reading. This is the pair of degrees and distance. The distance readings are still zero

IMG_7562

the radar

IMG_7563

after we fix the ultrasonic sensor, and it reads the correct distance

IMG_7566

now the radar detects the objects around

IMG_7568

Next we will make the robot navigates and creates map 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 14 Nov 2018

Standard

The last day before the competition day 🙂

IMG_8726

It is working fine, only a little problem with the power supply

IMG_8728

Yas 🙂

IMG_8732 IMG_8739

IMG_8751

Wish us luck for tomorrow! 😉

IMG_8740

Ready!!! 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 13 Nov 2018

Standard

3 days before the competition! Loads of things to do 🙂

IMG_8661

The letter that make us so proud 😉 Our research 😉

IMG_8659

Today Fadhlan is going to load all those stuff on top of the robot 🙂

IMG_8660

We use velcro to stick the batteries to the robot

IMG_8664

Okay it’s now ready for testing

IMG_8666

We tested ultrasonic sensor, micro servo, button, buzzer and the button, and the motor of course 😉

IMG_8668

IMG_8672

the button working fine

IMG_8673

the button and the ultrasonic and the LED and the buzzer are okay

IMG_8675

Okay the components and the code is working well! Going to do more tests tomorrow! 🙂
