Prince G. assembled the GoPiGo and is ready to apply Google Cloud

Prince Makes Progress with his GoPiGo Robot!

Prince has been working diligently since Spring Break on the GoPiGo Robot project.  He has progressed the farthest out of all the students that have attempted this project.  Before starting to build the robot, he learned a bit about linux.  Now that the robot is build, he is ready to explore the Google Cloud Vision API.  The next step is to add the GoPiGo camera so he can program it to achieve it’s goal – which is to detect a face and the emotion the face is making.

LAIA presents Rooftop Garden Robotics project at Frederick Douglass High School

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”9″ gal_title=”LAIA presents @ Frederick Douglass High School”]

LAIA shared the Rooftop Garden Robotics projects with the JUICE Club/Vex Robotics Team at Frederick Douglass High School (FDHS) in Baltimore, MD.  This launched the partnership between LAIA and the JUICE Club at FDHS.  FDHS has an agriculture program and a garden maintained by students. Our next step is to determine common goals and brainstorm our first joint step towards research and development.  A huge thanks to Dr. Lynn Paterson for hosting us.  We can’t wait to meet again.

LAIA Research Scientists did an amazing job presenting our progress so far on the Rooftop Garden Robotics project, even though our slidedeck got altered changing formats from Google Slideshow to Microsoft Powerpoint. 😉  We will fix this for our next presentation at Frederick Douglass High School in the next few weeks.
