Gridiron Gadgets: Engineering a New Kind of Educational Experience

nwelding   June 12, 2017

Gridiron Gadgets: Engineering a New Kind of Educational Experience Robotic football is a practical application of the theory taught in classes. Professor James Schmeideler, who teaches an introductory robotics course and helps to advise the robotic football club, describes the benefit as learning at the “systems level.” The robots themselves are systems, with software, mechanical and electrical components working together to achieve a desired function. ... at a higher level, the football team itself is in a sense a system of systems. So individual robots aren’t designed in isolation, but rather with the intent of cooperation and collaboration with other robot systems.
