ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 4 Oct 2019

Standard

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™‚

IMG_2369

the mapping result

IMG_2371

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 – Robotics – 23 Sept 2019

Standard

Road to Russia saga continues πŸ™‚

IMG_1664

Fadhlan has created an awesome PPT *for a 1000th time πŸ˜€

And it is getting better and better πŸ™‚ He is truly a hardworker πŸ™‚

IMG_1665

Today Fadhlan will rewire SNAPBOT I because it has stopped working since we tested it with PWM control and migrate it to Arduino Mega

IMG_1673

IMG_1675

and today we’re going to dissect another mouse. We have crushed 1 USB mouse, dissect and test 2 USB mouse, buy a wireless mouse but then found an easier way with PS2 mouse that we’re going to test today

IMG_1674

The wiring

Allright! The mouse will be deployed on SNAPBOT II πŸ™‚

IMG_1685

The mess we created today πŸ˜€

IMG_1687 IMG_1681 IMG_1680

Messy but we’re happy with the progress! Now we’re quite optimistic that we can get things done on time! 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˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 9 Sept 2019

Standard

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!

Another super duper hectic productive coding class today πŸ™‚

Adit is still on intro to programming with Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_9421 IMG_9424

IMG_9433

and finally finished it πŸ˜‰

IMG_9439

Al done a new machine learning project today πŸ™‚

IMG_9422

he chose tic tac toe πŸ™‚

IMG_9441

so Al basically will teach the computer to play tic tac toe πŸ˜‰

IMG_9447 IMG_9452

The result πŸ˜‰

IMG_9489

Clive starts to create his own game today πŸ™‚

IMG_9423

IMG_9437

Clive is super duper excited doing this πŸ™‚

IMG_9453

He works in high speed and understand the main concepts very fast

IMG_9474

The result πŸ˜‰

IMG_9481

Now Clive’s Maze game already has basic features: movement, chasing a target, scoring, and then after reaching a certain score the game will move to the next level πŸ™‚ great work

IMG_9506

Welcome to the class Boy πŸ™‚

IMG_9425

going through intro to programming

IMG_9427

Fadhlan’s is very nervous today because he’s going to a quarantine preparing for YSC international competition and he has to present his work and the progress before heading to Russia on October πŸ™‚

IMG_9432

Fadhlan has to change the Arduino board because the last time we finalising the robot, one pin is broken inside one of the Arduino port πŸ˜€ and after Fadhlan moved the cabling to the new Arduino, some functions are not working *look at that panic face πŸ˜€

IMG_9438

but finally all works πŸ˜€ the mapping is working now, all components on the breadboard are functional as well

IMG_9483

now testing the robot on the ground πŸ˜‰

IMG_9491

make some code adjustments, and Fadhlan is ready to go! Good luck!!!
