Robots



You want a course that is simple, practical and that allows you to learnto program a robot with Scratch.




You are looking for academic training for your students and support for teachers and educators.



You are looking for flexibility and for your students to be able to use the platform anywhere at any time and from any device.

Introduction to Robotics

Technology is becoming increasingly important and useful in 21st century society. Robots such as autonomous cars or automatic vacuum cleaners are good examples of the rise of robotic technology. In this lesson you will see the current landscape and trends.

Scratch language

The Scratch language allows you to organize the logic and behavior of the robot in a simple and accessible way, with very intuitive visual blocks. It also helps you to think! to organize a task as a sequence of steps. In this unit you will learn the most important blocks: conditionals, loops, etc.

Sensors

These are devices that allow to measure distances to obstacles, color of the things that surround the robot, etc. You will learn to use from your Scratch program the most common sensors in robotics such as infrared, laser or camera.

Actuators

The motors allow the robot to move around the environment, move forward or turn, and also pick up objects with a robotic gripper. You will learn how to operate these actuators from your Scratch program.

Basic applications

By combining sensors and actuators your robot will do fun tasks like follow a line, dodge obstacles or chase a ball. Each unit is dedicated to solving these challenges :-)

Fun applications with games

Now that you know the basics, you will tackle more complex and exciting taskswith your robot. Program it to go through a forest, play handkerchief and clean a room autonomously

Your students will learn to do these exercises

I have always been dedicated to robotics.After graduating as a Telecommunications Engineer I started working in research with mobile robots and did my doctoral thesis in robotics.Since then I am a professor at the university and I lead the robotics research group. It is made up of experts, researchers, university and teachers with experience in secondary education.

A few years ago we realized the importance of quality training in robotics and technology at an early age. And we started collaborating with schools and educational robotics companies to bring robotics and programming to children. We were concerned that this training quality but also that it was accessible to many families, not everyone can have a robot at home to learn how to program it.That is why we developed this platform Kibotics,which aims to facilitate the learning of robotics and programming with quality, without the need to have a robot, using the robot, using the most modern technological tools that allow us to use web simulators.web simulators. Since 2019 it has been used by, among others, the School of Computational Thinking of the Ministry of Education of Spain and Youth of the Community of Madrid and the City Council of Fuenlabrada.

In 2004, we created the RoboCampeones championship to encourage technical technical vocations among children in a fun way. The first 5 editions were held at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos and then an association was created to continue the competition. Kibotics is still present in some of these events.

Many of us would have loved to have been able to program robots when we were 12 years old but technology didn't allow it, now it does!

and founder of Kibotics, Jose María Cañas.


In the last five years Google has selected researchers from our team as part of its prestigious Google Summer of Code program. within its prestigious Google Summer of Code program, in the JdeRobot-Universidad Rey Juan Carlos organization, to develop open software in robotics and artificial vision.


Kibotics allows each student to progress at his or her own pace, always with the support of experts through the forum. It allows you to instantly see the result of the child's program and change it if necessary.

IES Martínez Uribarri, Salamanca (Álvaro Martín)


Kibotics has made it easy for us to run courses with our more advanced students complex concepts, such as machine vision, in a simple way. Through the simulator, each student can test their code on their own robot, opening up a whole world of possibilities.
