In this course students work as team to develop a field robot. The team itself is responsible for the progress of the work but will be guided in project management and organisation of the workflow. Staff is available on request to support and guide. Some tutorials will be organised the bridge the knowledge gaps.
Knowledge transfer from previous years and also to next year is important. The team has to consult the team from the previous year (and in principal be available for the team the following year). Documenting the work is an important aspect. Students have to acquire funds for building the robot themselves.
When a Field Robot Event is organised, the team will participate in this event. There is also an independent evaluation in Wageningen. This evaluation has to be in the report.
