2nd Hawaii Micro Robotics Bipedal Robot Workshop

August 25-26, 2012
Hawaii Community College, Hilo, Hawaii

Bipeduino – The Arduino compatible Bipedal robot.

• Circuit board is pre-soldered! Only mechanical assembly is required.

• Bluetooth built in! Control the robot remotely with your Android device –IOS support in the works

• New Features – 2 wall sensors, 4 expansion ports for sensors or servos, buzzer, RGB LED

• Compatible with the easy to use open source Arduino code base.

• Comes pre-programmed with an example walk program.

• Printed color assembly and instruction manual included.

• Finish the workshop with a programmable walking robot!

*For those of you who attended the bipedal conference in August 2011, this is a completely new design versus the EasyBiped: this robot has a full featured programming environment that is compatible with the existing Arduino code base. The circuit board is already soldered so assembly will be much quicker and we can focus more on getting everyone started learning how to write programs to make the robot do new and exciting things!

Goal: stimulate high technology education and assist in creating a technically capable workforce by developing the infrastructure and skill sets necessary to support high technology robotics-based activities as programs for potentially larger efforts, and as a result, increasing the number of students who have access to micro robotics, a program that is transitional between high school and college.

Who Are We?

We are the Waiakea High School located in Hilo, Hawaii. We have been a club since 2002, and participate in various robotic programs including: F.I.R.S.T. Robotics, VEX Robotics, Microbots, Underwater ROV, and Botball. Our students mentor our three feeder schools: Waiakea Intermediate, Waiakea Elementary, and Waiakea Waena Elementary. Our goal is to spread the innovation and fun of robotics to our community. 

What We Do?

Waiakea Robotics gives high school students the opportunity to design and build cutting edge robots. They learn valuable engineering skills, and having fun doing it.
