Robotics Requirements doc added to Adafruit Academy
We added Adam Kemp’s skill badge requirements doc for Robotics to the Adafruit Academy!
The concept of using mechanism and a power source to complete an autonomous task dates back to almost 300 years BC. Today’s robots use sophisticated computers, sensors, mechanics and power sources to complete tasks that range from a simple line-following racecar to six wheeled robots traversing the surface of Mars. This badge focuses on the components and control methods that go into the design and construction of a robotic device.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
