SYNOPSIS

To provide the necessary interest and skill in robotics and embedded coding, we often look at how students and robotics enthusiast can gather to learn, discover and compete using their robot creation is an open source electronics and software platform like Petrosains RBTX Challenge 2023 (https://petrosains.com.my/rbtx-challenge-2023/) In Petrosains RBTX Challenge 2023 Robo Trace Open, the challenge is to construct a robot that can move on a given line with left, right and cross junction and pass through all designated checkpoints on a predefined track. This is an autonomous racer device, a pathfinder robot that can move smartly based on a black line or white line on the path with junctions. In this course, coaches will explain about devices and their features that are built using electronic hardware and software coding that is suitable to compete in that said robotic challenge. Coaches will introduce to the participants specific purpose pathfinder robot, an Arduino-compatible open source electronic hardware developed suitable as a STEM education tools and for competing in defined challenges. Next, participants will be introduced to software coding, coding control structure, algorithm and flow chart. Then, be introduced to Mixly and Blockly, a software coding language created suitable as a STEM education tools. Participant will learn the basics of Mixly abd Blockly for enhance control logics. In addition participants will discuss and learn the pathfinder robot specific functionality and strategy for the pathfinder robot to complete its task most effectively. Finally, participants will start to configure, operate and test the pathfinder robot on a practice track. Participants will be guided to troubleshoot and overcome any problem that they faced during this period. Once participants are accustomed with the pathfinder robot functionality and strategy and, basics, advance and libraries, as build-up to the highlight of the course, participants will start to configure and prepare the pathfinder robot on a competition challenge track. Students will NO LONGER be guided but they will have to troubleshoot and overcome any problem that they faced during this period by themselves.
