Your own mobile robot

Design, build and control your own mobile robot. This is what this Summer school, organized by the EPFL Education Outreach Department, offers from June 28 to July 1, 2021.

Learn how to connect electronic components, program a microcontroller and create 3D models.

During this Summer school, participants will dive into the theory and application of mobile robotics using the micro:bit board to conceptualize, design and build their own robot.

The theoretical and practical sessions will allow them to first acquire the knowledge and skills, then immediately put them into practice to program and build a microcontroller using Python.

While applying what they learned about sensors, motion control and machine learning, they will be able not only to improve the mobile robot’s design, navigation and capacities, but also to teach it specific behaviors.
