Project: mBot for Real-Time Data Processing
This project is about designing an exploration/demo to teach students how to collect, process and visualize real-time data using Mathematica and mBot robots. This is illustrated through a scenario of a robot placed in an unknown environment, used to discover and plot a map in real-time using an ultrasonic/color sensor’s readings.
