This course will teach students how to build a robot with Raspberry Pi and control it using Python. The robot will be mobile and also has image recognition capability via Pi Camera. The team-built robot enters the UCSD’s Pi Wars competition . In this class, students explore basic components of motors, sensors, and electronics. They also use image processing and GPIO modules in Python. More details about the competition is at https://piwars.ucsd.edu/.
*The PiWars competition of UCSD is organized by the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UCSD.
*This class is not sponsored by the Supercomputer Center or UCSD.
*This class intends to prepare students for the competition.
