Title: Building Wheel Encoders for the Parallax Boe-Bot
Lead: Matt Bauer, Dan Hirsmuller-Counts, Felipe Jauregui
Advisors: Dr. Juliano, Dr. Renner

This is a workshop developed specifically for use in CSCI 224, Robotics and Machine Intelligence. A pair of photoresistors are used in the construction and mounting of wheel encoders that can be used for absolute positioning. Construction requires some soldering and use of a heat gun to heat shrink the photoresistors for improved readings. The workshop is designed for use outside of CSCI 224 and can be used to introduce students to basic electronics techniques (soldering, interpreting schematic diagrams, etc.) and some fundamentals of sensors.
