Students will build a robot that encourages physical activity
Students from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Rzeszow University of Technology were among the winners of the second edition of the CSR Masters competition – act with Henkel. The jury appreciated their idea of creating a SkyBot robot that encourages physical activity.
Skybot is a project for a robot thatory would encourage studentsoin Polish szkoł in rural areas for physical activity, as well as their interest in programming through coobuilding robotsow, as it is physical activity that will be needed to set the robot in motion.
The idea of the four studentsoin the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Rzeszow University of Technology associated in the SkyTeam group was among theod 9 other wyroThe motorcycles were awarded in the CSR Masters competition – act with Henkel. Each of the studentow will receive five thousand zlotys each for the SkyBot robot project.
– WspoWe work with schoolchildren by conducting classes on robotics and computer science. So we thought we would create a project thatory will urge children not only to be mentally active, but also physically active – admitted on the pages of the Rzeszow University of Technology Mateusz Salach, a student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Rzeszow University of Technology.
The task of the children will be to assemble their own robot from the modules receivedoin, and then with the help of an appropriately programmed wristband worn on the hand, the robot will be set in motion.
„With our self-assembly robot project, we want to fight the phenomenon of low physical activity in schools. The project participant can additionally gain knowledge of programming and basic electronics by assembling and putting the robot into action. It is the execution of exercises that sets it in motion!” – wrote the students in the project description.
– Robots controlled by the child’s movements will take part in the race. The winner will be the child, ktorego robot thanks to the precision and speed of the movements madeoIn the fastest to reach the finish line – explained Salach.
In the CSR Masters competition – Act with Henkel! Participation could be taken by students of all Polish universities, ktoers have developed an original project of pro-social activities with educational, environmental, health or cultural themes. The most important goal was to create something for the benefit of the wider community.
SkyBot robot to be ready by September 2018.
