Senior Seminar

Robotics Laboratory Guidelines

Introduction

One of the many choices CVGS students have in exploring their career interests through senior seminar technology laboratories is Robotics. Here seniors learn the basic principles of robotics and the computer programming required to control it. The lab contains a model of an industrial robot, the Rhino XR-3. A conveyor belt, sorter and turn table are all part of the workcell. The complete setup is a scale model of the type used in industrial manufacturing systems.

The students also build and program a robot using Legos and accompanying software.

The laboratory is exploratory in nature with students using instructional manuals and other resource materials to discover basic principles of robotics, and to learn how to manipulate the robot.
