During the weekend "the various forms of intelligences" from the 6 to
February 7 in the "muséum d'histoire naturelle" at Paris, the ANSTJ presented various robots (autonomous and controlled by computer) and made discover robotics to many people.
The "muséum d'histoire naturelle"
Children could use a workshop to discover how to build quickly
Samia explains how to build quickly small robots
A child building a bot
Fribotte team bots
The fribotte team has decided to present her small
robots to the visitors of the "muséum d'histoire naturelle"
to explain how they work and also to demonstrate
that it is possible to build autonomous robots with a small budget
(approximately 300F for a robot). We hope that many people will have taken
taste to the robotics with these demonstrations.

The Lego bot
This robot, built by Guillaume, has pleased the
children. It offered
many strategies: A frontal shock starts it or stops it, a strong source
of light also starts it. In short, it enchanted the children and fascinated

Two bots with an original control system
The control system of the robots "domestic iron" of the ANSTJ is very
original. It is in fact a personal computer which controls the robots using an interface which
differs completely from standards interfaces like the serial line or the
parallel port. In fact, some light-sensitive resistors are connected to a power module
which controls the robot engines. These light-sensitive resistors are stuck to
different parts of the PC screen. Moreover, the software which controls
the robot, lights or extinguishes some areas of this screen. This causes to
power or not the engines.
