Project Description

Students will design, build and program a mobile robotic platform with various sensors.

The machine will employ:

  • Range-Finding
  • Proximity
  • Encoder
  • Limit
  • Optical
  • Electrical Control
  • Vision Sensors

Experts – Mr Frank; Mark Lewendowski; Mr Campbell


This machine will allow us to learn about designing and building a complex machine while integrating various sensor applications and how to program them. We will also use the machine to teach others about mobile machines and the different sensors used.

"While reflecting on this learning activity, Sensor bot pushed our patience. We felt asphyxiated at times with the amount of work. Next time our team needs to do a better job of organizing work and having a sense of urgency. We learned about how to interact with each other; we need to learn to be more understanding of each other; we learned about how cope with frustration, and that re-organization is not always a bad process."
— Mr. Campbell, teacher
