Parralax Train System
Ft. Pumpkin Pie
During the summer of 2015, I attended NYC Summer STEM, an NYC DOE program funded by Microsoft that aimed to spread STEM to NYC public school students. Throughout the month, we worked with the Parallax robotics kit, experimenting with and using all different kinds of sensors. For the final"project" everyone got into groups and build a big project that used all the skills they'd learned that month. I decided to work alone, and built a model train system- using QTI line following, ultrasonic + RFID train stops, servoes to make everything move and the WAV library for sound. It was an insanely rewarding project, and one of the funnest to play with.
