5 Coolest Robotics Projects Made With Python
Some of the coolest robotics projects programmed with Python!
Let’s face it, robots are cool. On the internet, we see robots doing really amazing stuff like this one with ? dancing skills by Boston Dynamics. Some of the most incredible robotics projects you see out there are programmed with a language called Python. It is a versatile language that is used by many organizations and platforms worldwide. Some of the corporations that utilize Python include Google, Netflix, Facebook.
Python is a useful language to learn because it is used to develop various applications in computer science and machine learning. Robots are usually controlled by a small computer called the Raspberry Pi, the size of a bank card. Python is the programming language used with the Raspberry Pi, which makes it highly relevant to robotics.
Today, we bring you some of the coolest robotics projects programmed with Python.
Top Robotics Projects Made With Python
5: Simple Robot With Computer Vision and Python by Nikodem Bartnik
Coming at number 5, this is a robot made to track red objects using the blob detection algorithm. Read more about the project HERE.
4: Robotic Arm Based on Raspberry Pi and Python by Adeept Studio
This robotic arm was programmed using Python. It includes 4 modes (Rotary Encoder, Movement Input, Keys and Steps, Timelapse Mode).
3: Chess Playing Robot by Robot Technology
Number 3 is a chess-playing robot that uses a camera and a visual recognition system running on a Raspberry Pi to detect the movements of chess pieces in the game. The project integrates aspects of robotics, computer vision, and chess. Read more about the project HERE.
2: Giant Neopixel LED Mirror by Super Make Something
At number 2, this giant mirror was inspired by Daniel Rozin’s mechanical mirror. Using 3D printing, laser cutting, a Raspberry Pi, computer vision, Python, and nearly 600 Neopixel LEDs, this low resolution LED mirror displays your reflection on a massive 3 foot by 3-foot grid made from an array of 24 by 24 RGB LEDs.
1: RF Grasp: The robot that finds its way through a clutter
Drum roll, please. And the winner of this list is a hidden object grasper by MIT. The RF-Grasp is a robotic system that can grasp fully occluded objects in unknown and unstructured environments. Read more about this incredible project HERE.
Robots are already impacting our lives and are going to be doing more in the future. Although learning robotics may seem daunting, it is a highly rewarding field. At Robociti, we’ve made learning robotics easy for you with easy-to-follow robotics and AI courses, competitions and learning paths. We provide robotics and programming courses for kids and also beginner to advanced courses for adults.
