My name is Jean Lapaix and I am currently working on improving the precision of a low-cost robotic platform. The platform will be used to demonstrate mathematical concepts to high school students. I plan to utilize optical encoders and PID algorithms to increase the precision of the platform’s mobility as well as use Bluetooth communication to display data for the students to see on a laptop or mobile device.
I began the project in August of 2013 and currently in the prototyping stage of development. I will update this blog of my accomplishments so far and next plans of action to be used as a resource for your prospective projects.
