Real World Vehicles
In this unit, your pupils will strengthen their design engineering skills by solving complex real-world problems related to creating real-life robotic vehicles. They will apply skills spanning multiple subjects to analyse major global challenges, elaborate qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints, and break down large problems into smaller ones. Throughout the unit, your pupils will develop and use a series of test cases to verify that a solution performs according to the design specifications. And finally, they will strengthen their communication skills as they clearly, concisely and logically present information, findings and supporting evidence.
Make a Speed Control System
Design a cruise control system that changes the speed of a vehicle when a button is pressed.
Make an Autonomous Robotic Explorer
Design, build and program a robotic system that follows a path and communicates its position at least twice along the way.
