Saudi Aramco hosts robotics workshop for university students
The workshop, dubbed “Design and Build Your Own Robot,” involved project-based, hands-on participation from students in order to teach them about the basics of designing, developing and programming robotic systems. Engineers from Saudi Aramco's Intelligent Systems Team also helped guide the workshop.
Six teams were formed at the workshop, with each one building a robot to complete a timed remote-control race and an autonomous trajectory challenge.
“I believe the workshop was a great and effective experience in improving both individual and team skills,” said Amjad Felemban, an attendee and student at KAUST. “The way the workshop divided team members into different project roles was essential in teaching someone how to build their technical skills and communicate with the rest of the team members in a workplace-like fashion.”
