Tarek Abdelwareth, an undergraduate studying Computer Engineering at Nile University in Egypt, shared with us a very cool ROBOTC project he put together with his team called Human Vs. Robot: Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
The robot was designed using only LEGO MINDSTORM parts and a white board pen then programmed in ROBOTC with more than 1500 lines of code. We asked Tarek to share some information about the robot …
“It took me and my team about a week to build the design and a month to complete the code of all programming stages we set. We participated in the WRO (World Robotics Olympiad) with this robot in the Open Category (Senior-High) last year. Our team got the first place in Egypt and the 10th place worldwide.
The robot in the video is actually an old version by the way; there has been much improvements in the programming that made it faster and efficient. Plus, the algorithm of thinking and playing has improved that the robot simply never lose now.”
Happy Friday! I thought it might be nice to end the week with a little sneak preview into our newest Robot Virtual World game, “Expedition Atlantis: A Calculated Deep Sea Adventure.” We are still working on it, so things might change, but wanted to share an inside look. The game and curriculum will be available this Fall. Check back for more info soon!
The Robot Virtual Worlds team has been developing a multiplayer game mode, and our group was lucky enough to get a sneak peak last week (and I made sure to record the event for you!)
Check out the video from the preview:
It will work with ROBOTC, have CS2N connectivity for achievements, private rooms so only the people you invite will be allowed in, structured chat rooms, and a lot more!! Look for it to be released at the end of the summer.
What do you think? What features would you like to see included in it?
