Robot at Factory Lite - A Step-by-Step Educational Approach to the Robot Assembly Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • In a robotics scope, an excellent way to test and improve knowledge is through competitions. In other words, it is possible to follow the results in practice, compare them with the development of other teams and improve the current solutions. The Robot At Factory Lite proposal simulates an Industry 4.0 warehouse scenario, applying education through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) methodology, where the participants have to work on a solution to overcome its challenges. Thus, this article presents an initial electromechanical proposal, which is the basis for developing robots for this competition. The presented main concepts aim to inform the possibilities of using the robot’s parts and components. Thus, an idea can be sketched in the participants’ minds, inspiring them to use their imagination and knowledge through the presentation of this model.
