Design education using personal mobile robot

Abstract

In this study, we describe an educational program of robotics in the course of the department of design. Most target students are uninterested in robotics and have no background with advanced mathematics and physics. Then, we try to expand experience-based learning by using a real robot. The non-science students in the university build an actual working robot and this interests them. The robot is a mobile robot that is designed to carry the objects instead of the user. Students did machining and assembling of mechanical and electrical parts and then built the mobile robot. After the course, 84% students scored more than average.
