Robotics 2b: Build Your Robot

Robotics 2b: Build Your Robot


You have learned how to think like a robotics engineer, and now, it’s time to design and build like one to breathe life into your machine. In this course, you’ll explore how to add more complexity to your creations to make them more efficient, capable, and better able to handle advanced tasks. You will also learn how models and simulations can enhance robotic development and construction. After a real-world safety review, a deeper dive into advanced applications and systems, and improving your prototype, you’ll finalize and launch your robot. Are you ready to continue improving the world with your machine? Let’s automate!


  • Safety is essential, and working with robots poses specific safety challenges. As you launch into more advanced robot design and building, you will be engaging in tasks that come with greater risk and the potential for risk to personal safety. In this unit we will explore various aspects of robot safety and discuss the steps we can take to keep ourselves and those around us safe. As we start to build our robots, this review will ensure that we begin on the right foot.

    What will you learn in this unit?

    • Understand the types of risks associated with robotics construction and wiring
    • Evaluate different safety organizations and their activities
    • Explain the types of safety risks related to working with or alongside robots
    • Describe different types of batteries and the potential safety hazards they represent
