Co-working, Co-facturing for robotics and electronic hardware

We are now taking applications for our Fall 2020 Robotics CoLab.

Team Project Pathway: Fall 2020

Our next sponsored project is to build an open source humanoid robot to serve as a platform for our community to test and prototype new applications in AI, machine vision, human-robot interaction, and intuitive robot control systems such as virtual reality telepresence.

The components and materials will be provided; you and your team will build and document your process towards a fully realized Reachy! Pollen Robotics are the developers of this open source project and all designs are under the creative commons BA-SY license.

Program Structure

Each week we will be implementing a widely used industry standard SCRUM Project Management process for the team. You will be engaging in weekly sprints towards our eventual goal and be held accountable for your tasks and goals by your team members.

Custom specialized workshops, mentor-led study halls, and intensive knowledge deep dive sessions will be held weekly throughout the program. These sessions are intended to target knowledge and skill gaps, and provide momentum to overcome obstacles.

Technical mentors will be guiding students along every step of the way, not lecturing, but enabling you to learn by doing.

Week 1 sessions:

We encourage in-person participation but can make allowances for virtual attendees. Mon & Tuesday sessions are compulsory. The Wed and Friday sessions have leeway/alternatives if you have scheduling conflicts.

  • Monday 5th October 2020 (10am - 5pm) Robot Arm Hackathon
  • Tuesday 6th October 2020 (10am - 5pm) Project Planning/Kickoff
  • Wednesday 7th October 2020 (1pm - 5pm) 3D Printing Workgroup
  • Friday 9th October 2020 (2pm - 4pm) Team Cohort Show & Tell

Week 2-12 sessions:

Each week there are three group sesssions, usually:

  • Monday: SCRUM Checkin: Weekly Goals and Task Planning
  • Wed: Workshop or Open Workgroup with Mentor(s)
  • Friday: Show and Tell - What have you built this week?
