To build this awesome Rubik cube solving machine, we had to start learning the components that make up this model. From the week of discussions we came to realise that there was more to just the framework and wiring that would put this machine together. We finally split up into 4 major components, with 1 or 2 people focusing their attention on each one.
- Coding solution- for solving the Rubik’s Cube
- Camera coding and recognition of colour – to detect and receive information to send to the coding solution
- Motor coding and hardware – to be able to take information from the coding solution and put it into mechanical work
- Mechanical Framework – the overall frame and the placement of the robot arms
There was a lot to learn from this project as we had to learn from scratch some materials like product awareness, Arduino and C+ coding language.
