Pi on Wheels, Make Your Own Robot

Version 7

    By Michael Hoffer, Computer Scientist, Goethe-Center for Scientific Computing in Frankfurt

    The Pi on Wheels is an affordable open source DIY robot that is ideal for learning Java-related technologies in the context of the Internet of Things. In this session we will talk about how 3D printing works and how it can be utilized to build robots. The most fascinating aspect of 3D printing is that it is astonishingly easy to customize the robot. It allows you to build something completely new and different. We provide a Java based IDE that allows you to control and program the robot. In addition to that it can be used to programmatically design 3D geometries.
