Final Project Guidelines
- Each student / team of two students will present their creation within 10 minutes
- Block diagram with all the electronic components
- Sketches of the physical appearance, not only to see how it looks like but the C.O.G.
- Functional Diagram (either finite state machine, flowchart or pseudo-code)
- Proof of concept: mechanics, electronics and software
- Be ready to be asked: why is it a robot? why not a machine? is it alive? is it intelligent? does it help humanity? does it explore any frontier of current knowledge?
- Three aspects will be evaluated: Concept ( the story behind ), Design ( sketches and iterations) and Functionality ( actual prototype and diagrams )
