Table of contents


You will start by learning about different types of safety equipment and tools used in robotics. After this sensor preparation, micro-controllers, sensors and AI are covered. Then the course gets a lot more exciting with security projects, this section has a build lesson and a code along lesson for each project. Finally you will built a chassis and the lifeScout robot! Any lessons after this will show you extend the robots functionality.

All lessons have downloadable resources, including source code. Help guides showing you how to install Arduino is also included, along with parts lists if you want to build the robot. NOTE: you do not need to build the robot to benefit from this course, as you can apply what you learn to many different projects.

This is a dynamic learning environment that will always be improving, I plan to support multiple languages to increase accessibility and diversity. I also follow the concept that perfection is achieved when there is nothing left to take away, you will only be shown what you need to know and will not be overwhelmed with clutter. Those who suffer from ADHD or other conditions can complete this course as its structure should prevent you being distracted.

You will not need to watch every lecture, it is designed so that you can chose the ones useful to you, for example the chassis section will show you how to build a number of chassis. Watch the one that applies to you. If you have any questions download the FAQ or message me.

You do not need to code anything, you can simply download the code and press a few buttons to upload it to the robot. Instructions for this are included in the resources section.


September 2019: Adafruit build and new chassis build lessons added.
October 2019: Tools, Safety, Sensor Prep video lessons added and resources updated for each section.
November 2019: Added wireless control lessons using a HC-06 BlueTooth module, resources updated.

Technology Hobbyist
I have always had a passion for science and technology, I am not limited to one small subject area. My current focus in on robotics and trans-humanism. Currently working on a number of exciting robotic projects.

I am new to the ecourse market place and am looking to develop my brand overtime while giving maximum value to learners. Note that when you buy a course its a ticket to maximum potential as I plan to add to the course regularly. This will normally be in the form of extra lessons showing different solutions or expanding on functionality. For my lifeScout course I plan to make it wireless and have already built a prototype robot control unit, which I plan to develop into a pip boy like device.

My expertise involve the following:

1) Arduino

2) Raspberry Pi

3) Electronics

4) Fuzzy Logic

5) Artificial Intelligence
