Robotics Programming Tutorial: How to Program a Simple Robot

Editor’s note: On October 16th, 2018, this article was overhauled to work with the latest technologies.

Let’s face it, robots are cool. They’re also going to run the world some day, and hopefully, at that time they will take pity on their poor soft fleshy creators (a.k.a. robotics developers) and help us build a space utopia filled with plenty. I’m joking of course, but only sort of.

In my ambition to have some small influence over the matter, I took a course in autonomous robot control theory last year, which culminated in my building a Python-based robotic simulator that allowed me to practice control theory on a simple, mobile, programmable robot.

In this article, I’m going to show how to use a Python robot framework to develop control software, describe the control scheme I developed for my simulated robot, illustrate how it interacts with its environment and achieves its goals,

CleanseBot – World's First Bacteria Killing Robot

Introducing CleanseBot

Smart Robots
CleanseBot is the world’s ONLY bacteria killing robot designed with YOU in mind.
CleanseBot is a smart robot with artificial intelligence and 18 sensors built in. It uses FOUR UV-C lamps to blast away 99.99% of germs and bacteria on ANY SURFACE.
But most importantly, on your hotel bed.
Hotels are notorious for germs and bacteria and you don’t want to worry about that when you’re traveling – whether you are traveling for work or for fun!
Just set the CleanseBot down on the bed, turn it on for either 30 or 60 minutes, and go about your day while it sanitizes and disinfects your bed sheets and blankets!
Not only does CleanseBot kill germs, bacteria, and dust mites, but UV-C light has been proven in many studies to actually help prevent the spread of airborne viruses, too.
CleanseBot is the ONLY thing like this in the world!
