Stanford students learn to program robots from home

The Experimental Robotics course was moved online due to COVID-19, but students used the same programming skillset in simulation to complete their tasks.

Every year, students in Experimental Robotics program robots to complete a variety of fun and creative tasks.

This year’s class was moved online due to COVID-19 but students used the same programming skillset in simulation to complete their tasks. The simulation features real-time feedback and accurate physics. This year’s projects include commercial construction, satellite capture and Spikeball.
