XBOT Robotics bringing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math hands on experiences to the young people of SE Seattle
XBOT Robotics - team XBOT #488 had an amazing 2019 season with the team being recognized for our robot vision - the "Innovation in Control Award" and Gracious Professionalism Award for our team's outreach events in the community and assisting other sister FRC teams.
2019 "a-ha Robot Vision
A unique feature on our 2019 robot was the "a-ha" Robot vision: using the Nvidia Jetson TX and ZED stereoscopic camera (on the robot) + custom software -- field representation image was sent almost real time to the robot driver laptop over the field's wifi network. The robot driver team & laptop was outside of the field,. The field is 27' by 54' (size of a tennis court) with two major scoring structures - quite the challenge The blue line served as a cross hair to position the robot game piece delivery.
Franklin HS is a Seattle urban school with 94% students of color, 70% free/reduced lunch students & 70% English Language Learner students. Thank You to our team mentors, sponsors, friends and family that make this hands on , real life, technology rich experience possible. the students of SE Seattle do not have this opportunity in the traditional public school setting. Thank You Again!
