About the event
Join us at QUAD to celebrate Mini Robot Day 2023 for this year’s themed day exploring robotics and automation in agriculture with engineering expert Sam Wane. Learn how to control robots and how they are forming an important step in the farms of the future. This lecture is part of QUAD’s Worldbuilding Season in partnership with The IET and Robot Day.
On offer are the following three events:
Workshops (13:00 and 15:30)
Want to get hands on?
Join one of our afternoon workshops to get to learn skills in a range of topics, including microcontrollers, controlling the speed and steering function of a small vehicle, connecting to a GPS system, and programming a vehicle to drive autonomously to a destination. You’ll get to apply your new skills and knowledge using a specially developed outdoor mobile robot. The robot buggy is an all-terrain robust robot for outdoor use. The system is based on a microcontroller board with sensors attached, a suite of library files to aid programming, reading the sensors, controlling the motors, all mounted on a rock-crawler all-terrain vehicle.
13:00 workshop for under 18s (min. recommended age 14). Book here: www.derbyquad.co.uk/events/robotdayu18s/
15:30 workshop for 18s and over. Book here: www.derbyquad.co.uk/events/robotdayadults/
