Multidisciplinary teams of minor students have designed and built a functional robotic prototype for a project customer with a challenge to improve the lives of working people. Streaming live from RoboHouse on the TU Delft Campus, you can join a virtual celebration of ideas en technology with some of our communities finest talent.
On Thursday 28 January 3pm (CET) you can visit the streaming website that we have created for the occasion. There you will find live video streams for a programme with a project overview and demonstrations by each student team. This all happens between 3pm and 4:30pm.
Our hosts will be running around RoboHouse for you, going from robot to robot and from team to team, followed by highly mobile camera people, all with the purpose of giving you the most intimate and direct experience. We want you feel as if you are able to touch the robots yourself.
After toasting on another successful Demo Day, the programme will go into free flow. You are invited to plunge into the various projects and splash around with anyone you like during the Breakouts. These start around 4:40pm and can be joined via Zoom-links that are available on the website.
And of course, most appreciation and respect go to the eight talented student teams, who this edition go by the illustrious names of: Krill + ARMS + D.I.R.T + BikeBotics + Oxillia + BoxBot + Shino + Althea.
Welcome to the future of work!
The Minor Robotics is a 5-month educational program for third year BSc students of Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Design, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology. A team of students from all above disciplines (to make sure they cover all knowledge needed in robotics) are working on building a robot for a customer.
Students follow multidisciplinary courses, and work in multidisciplinary teams to design, build, and program robots for customers. During the first months of the minor the students will focus on taking courses outside their own discipline (for example, the Industrial Design student will learn about programming and electronics, while a Computer Science student will learn about statics and prototyping). But they will also work on the design of their robot in close collaboration with the customer.
The last months are dedicated full time on building the robot and ends with a demo together with all other teams from the Minor Robotics.
