List of tutorials and how-to (s) on how to properly position your robots on the fields. If the robot does not know where it is, it can never achieve a stable, repeatable behaviour. Attachments and robot constructions come second. First, you need to program the positioning. Following and aligning to lines, aligning to borders, aligning to mission model.
Videos for the World Robotics Olympiad 2014, Junior-High competition. We loved it because, let's be honest, it is about space, and don't we all love topics connected with space.
This series of video tutorials have everything in it. Construction, Programming, Sensors (Light, Ultrasonic, Touch), Calibration, Fun, EV3, NXT. You could also use it for introduction of different experiements in the classroom especially connected with the physics of firing.
Active attachments are powered by a motor. Being able to change the direction and orientation of rotation is a great super-power when in comes to LEGO Mindstorms Robot Constructions. Its actually the foundation to active constructions. This series of video tutorials present the basic principles and give detailed buiding instructions with specific examples.
The Big Daddy construction came as an idea on how to build a four wheel robot that would use a differential for driving. In this playlist we show how to clearly separate the modules of the robot on front/read/middle how to build a differential drive how transfer power from motors to the wheel with a gear system and a differential different ways to position the motors and brick on a final construciton and finally and probably most importantly -> what is a differential lock and how to implement it Instructions for building the robot are given below each video and a few tasks are available for solving
Includes video tutorials on different LEGO Mindstorms competition constructions that could be used in the FIRST LEGO League competition. Both NXT and EV3 are included. A competition construction must be well balanced, have enough space for attachments and must not use an excessive amounts of parts.
Pinless attachments are about speed and ease and the make great difference during competitions. In the following videos we are demonstrating several ways to build and use Pinless Attachments for LEGO Mindstorms EV3 competition robots, especially for the FIRST LEGO League and World Robotics Olympiad competitions.
A list of video tutorials on how to build LEGO Mindstorms attachments with rubber bands mostly in the EV3 sets. The rubber bands are quite powerful when it comes to firing, throwing and accomplising missions without the use of motors.
