Leader boards

I’ve now published the leader boards for the robot competition.  Students on the robotics courses undertake timed challenges to test their robots.  The results from the summer school are now posted here.  Some lessons learnt by the students:

  • Bigger is not necessarily better
  • Faster is not necessarily better
  • A robot driving backwards can behave differently to one going forward
  • The ultrasonics sensor is not 100% reliable
  • The wheels may rotate at different speeds
  • Battery packs can add a fair amount of weight
  • Driving a robot with a wired controller is very tricky
  • Nuts and bolts fall off if you don’t tighten them
