Three years of using robots in an artificial intelligence course: lessons learned
Amruth N. Kumar
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/1083310.1083311
We have been using robots in our artificial intelligence course since fall 2000. We have been using the robots for open-laboratory projects. The projects are designed to emphasize high-level knowledge-based AI algorithms. After three offerings of the...

Pyro: A python-based versatile programming environment for teaching robotics
Douglas Blank, Deepak Kumar, Lisa Meeden, Holly Yanco
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/1083310.1047569
In this article we describe a programming framework called Pyro, which provides a set of abstractions that allows students to write platform-independent robot programs. This project is unique because of its focus on the pedagogical implications of...

An intelligent agent approach for teaching neural networks using LEGO® handy board robots
Susan P. Imberman
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1083310.1083312
