Build an Advanced Competition Ready AI-Enabled Autonomous Mobile Robot - Part 3

If you are interested in attending this program, we recommend registering for the full 3 week Elite track.



Build not just a mobile robot, but a true smart autonomous self-driving vehicle, and learn how to program it to race around a track all by itself without any remote control!


By completing this session students automatically become eligible to compete with their built robot vehicles in the Evodyne Autonomous Racing Tournament 2022 to be held on the the weekend of July 29.



You must have a previously built EvoArm from Part 1 and Part 2 to attend this session. Call us if you have a previously built EvoArm from a prior session with us.


By the end of this course, each student will have built their own wifi-connected smart vehicle controlled by a Raspberry Pi programmed by the students themselves. The robot arm built in Parts 1 and 2 will be mounted on top of the car to make a full mobile manipulator robot. The first two days will be used for building, the remaining three for programming and deeper concepts.


  • Learn about motor controllers, motor drivers to directly control motors instead of integrated servos
  • Soldering! Students will learn and become confident in soldering as part of building the smart car platform
  • Different battery types, connectors, wiring, construction techniques and where and how to buy parts
  • Deeper dive into Python programming for robotics
  • Each student will receive brand-new hardware and non-shared equipment.


Each student will receive a box of supplies upon arrival, which will be used for building their robot. When the course is over, students are expected to take their box home for a full summer of continued enjoyment and learning.


Upon completing this session, older students are encouraged to attend the Genesis Track with Advanced Robotics Lab if spots are available. 


Optionally, by attending the week of July 5, you will learn how various objects and robots are designed and manufactured from ground-up using Autodesk Fusion 360, so you can design and bring your own ideas to life!

Social Distancing Policy

We have worked hard to create a safe setup that minimizes risk:

  • Masks are now optional

  • Reasonable social distancing will be encouraged and unnecessary huddling will be discouraged

  • We recommend each student bring their own water bottle.


What To Bring

  • Each student must bring his/her own Mac Or Windows laptop with sufficient free disk space, and administrative rights to install the Arduino IDE and other necessary utilities.
  • Chromebook will not work
  • A USB-C to USB adapter if your laptop contains only the new USB-C ports
