Robot Builder's Guide - Pitsco TETRIX PRIME for NI myRIO
This builder’s guide provides students with an introduction to robotics and engineering that is designed to instill confidence and creativity. With the assistance of this guide, students will learn to use the Pitsco TETRIX PRIME® building system and myRIO to construct and automate three model robots that complete basic to advanced tasks. For each robot, students build the physical assembly, connect sensors and actuators, run programs in LabVIEW, and learn the high-level controls theory that applies to the robot's function. Students are encouraged to apply their creativity and the skills they learn to develop additional functionality for the model robots, and create new robot designs on their own.
