Abstract

Students, particularly those that will be studying in upper-tier Unified Robotics courses at WPI, are in need of a robotics platform that will provide a foundation facilitating laboratory demonstrations and experiments on theoretical concepts in robotics, as well as a basis for robotic projects, allowing a focus on more complicated subjects instead of getting a system "up and running" first. The main purpose of this project is to design and prototype a modular robotics base that will fulfill the needs of these intended audiences. This base will be modular, allowing mechanical, electronic, and software modifications while maintaining an ease-of-use approach.
