Twenty-three students from CSCI 250 presented six different projects at the annual W&L Spring Term Fair in Leyburn Library — so many projects that they were given their own floor of the library for the demos! W&L innovations included using Python to fly an AR.Drone via Kinect hand gestures and to navigate a Neato XV-11 LIDAR robot around an obstacle, as well as the cool projects depicted below (Steve Goryl photo credits).
Deirdre and Haley used a Raspberry Pi to add sonar capability to their Brookstone Rover ‘bot.
Sam, Drew, Jok, and Darren built and programmed a robotic arm.
Michael, Stephen, and Hank built an R/C plane with remote pan-tilt camera and laptop controller.
Lee, James, and Colin programmed an AR.Drone to follow a moving ground vehicle.
