Underwater robotics in Koramangala

This afternoon the UdiGitalEdu team in India (Xevi Cufí, Jordi Freixenet and I) conducted an underwater robotics workshop for the children of Parikrma Centre for Learning in Koramangala (Bangalore). It was held in the swimming pool of the Koramangala Club.


For us it's been a challenge to do this activity in India and we are very happy with the result. Children were able to teleoperate a low-cost underwater vehicle, they discovered how it works, and they learned some robotics concepts like remote operation, and also some simple physics concepts like buoyancy. During the activity children have been challenged to perform some cooperative tasks, like retrieving objects from the bottom of the pool and bring them to the surface, by using the robot, a cam and a monitor.

I think the pictures speak for themselves.
