Robotics Club

The mission of the Robotics Club is to encourage students and faculty to discuss, prototype, and test robots that they choose to create on their own or with others. The club is mentored by Dr. David Hoe in the Engineering department and Dr. Roger Eastman in the Computer Science department.

The club is meeting regularly on Friday afternoons this semester (Fall 2015) in the Robotics Lab (DSC 143). Currently, many of the student members are working with Zumo robots in preparation for a mini-Sumo robotics competition to be held at Loyola later this semester. The students are learning to program the Arduino microprocessor for controlling the Zumo robots and to interface the Arduino to various components such as sensors and motors. 

In addition, some students are working on the Pioneer, an advanced mobile robot used for research.

All are welcome to take part in the club and no experience in robotics is necessary. Please contact John Selle (jtsellejr@loyola.edu) or Christopher Kelble (cjkelble@loyola.edu) for further information.
