I am planning to make a smartphone app that teaches basic concepts and methods of robotics. My idea is to:
- assume some (but not much) knowledge of programming,
- teach via answers to questions like “what is motion planning?” and “what is SLAM?”
- teach methods, for example, centering the camera on an object of interest.
Users would complete programming exercises on real robots via rerobots, e.g., https://rerobots.net/try/fixed_misty2
The app would not be about Misty robots per se but would use Misty as a teaching platform. My goal would be to complement existing “learn how to code” apps (e.g., https://grasshopper.app/), and therefore, I assume some prior knowledge of programming, but no prior knowledge of robotics.
