Robotics Videos

The Robotics Resource Center at WPI has produced a number of robotics videos taught by WPI Robotics Engineering faculty to help rookie and veteran teams learn more about the design of robots. The videos are aimed at students and mentors and present topics that will help in the successful design of your robots. Each video is about 10 minutes long with a number of playlists that step through more complex subjects.

The videos can be accessed at

Available video topics include:

  • Sensors and Sensing
  • Motors
  • Designing with pneumatics
  • FRCSim robot simulator for C++ and Java teams
  • Advanced robotics applications
  • Building robot programs with RobotBuilder
  • Power transmission
  • Introduction to controls

Check back periodically for updates and new videos, and good luck in this year’s competition!
