Lesson 1 - Electricity and Electronics for Robotics - This is the first lesson for first year senior members.
Lesson 2 - Electrical and Electronic Circuits This lesson covers the basic information you need to learn about circuits and electronic parts.
Data sheet for R3 potentiometer used in this lesson. This data sheet covers several types. The one we are using is PV36W with drawings on pages 67 and 69 of the data sheet. This is a 25 turn pot, which means you must turn the screw 25 turns to achieve the full range of resistance adjustments possible.
Resistor exercise This exercise is designed to help members understand the photoresistor circuit.
Lesson 5, DC Motors This is the last lesson for breadboard wiring. After this you will learn to solder and start building your real robot!
Manufacture of a magnet Here is a nice video covering a manufacturing process for permanent magnets
Schematic of breadboard circuits (except power circuit)
The lessons above will prepare our members to build Sandwich, a line following robot, found in the book "Robot Building for Beginners" by David Cook.
Parts List This document provides the parts list for the robot.
