utonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) share common A control problems with other air, land, and water unmanned vehicles. In addition to requiring high-dimensional and computationally intensive sensory data for real-time mission execution, power and communication limitations in an underwater environment make it more difficult to develop a control architecture(More)
Mobile robotics is a new field. Mobile robots range from the sophisticated space robots, to the military flying robots, to the lawn mower robots at our back yard. Mobile robotics is based on many engineering and science disciplines, from mechanical, electrical and electronics engineering to computer, cognitive and social sciences (Siegwart & Nourbakhsh,(More)
The article discusses impediments that face researchers and academic institutions that try to implement training programs. The ability of virtual modeling and simulation (VM&S) systems to mitigate some problems is explained. A solution system, Virtual Robots (VROBO), is developed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
The Engino Robotics Platform Controller, which is presented in this paper, is a control box intended for primary and early secondary education students. It is used to teach basic control, robotics and technology based courses. Along with the controller a series of external sensors have been developed that can be directly connected to the controller. The(More)
