This unit introduces the fundamental computational paradigms of robotic systems (sense-reason-act) in the context of a hands-on, studio based learning environment using the mBot robots. Students will learn and practice event-driven programming methods within mBlock, the visual programming environment for the mBot robot. Problems such as animating movement, responding to stimuli, and creating meaningful behaviours in constrained environmental contexts will form the basis of practical investigations of the robots capabilities and limitations, as well as the design and development of programmatic solutions.
