Educational robotics program
The Botball Educational Robotics Program engages middle and high school aged students in a team-oriented robotics competition based on national science education standards. By designing, building, programming, and documenting robots, students use science, engineering, technology, math, and writing skills in a hands-on project that reinforces their learning.
Robotics concepts – Mainly from Wikipedia
Subsumption architecture is a reactive robot architecture heavily associated with behavior-based robotics.
A robotic paradigm can be described by the relationship between the three primitives of robotics: Sense, Plan, and Act.
Senses are the physiological methods of perception.
A plan is typically any procedure used to achieve an objective.
Behavior-based robotics or behavioral robotics is the branch of robotics that incorporates modular or behavior based AI (BBAI).
Behavior based AI
Behavior Based Artificial Intelligence (BBAI) is a methodology for developing AI based on a modular decomposition of intelligence.
MIBE architecture (Motivated Independent BEhavior) is a behavior-based robot architecture developed at Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab of Politecnico di Milano by Fabio La Daga and Andrea Bonarini in 1998.
Algorithms & Mathematics
¬ Kalman Filter
The Kalman filter is an efficient recursive filter that estimates the internal state of a linear dynamic system from a series of noisy measurements.
¬ Rotation representation (mathematics)
In geometry a rotation representation expresses the orientation of an object (or coordinate frame) relative to a coordinate reference frame.
