Scheduled learning activities - cloud (online)

Online independent and collaborative learning including optional scheduled activities as detailed in the unit site.


Student Equipment Purchases

Learning experiences and assessment activities in this unit may require that students have access to specific computing equipment such as mBot ranger robot (to the approximate value of $250). This equipment will also be usable in subsequent units of the course. If purchases were required, students will be informed in the first few weeks of the lectures.


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 ranger robots. Students will learn and practice event-driven programming methods within mBlock5, the visual programming environment for the mBot ranger 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.
