Build your own virtual robots with Robocode!
Robocode is a programming game, where the goal is to develop a robot battle tank to battle against other tanks which will be developed in Java.
This program consists of 10 sessions from November 2016 through to March 2017.
Session 1 – Mon 14th November – “My First Robot”
Session 2 – “Intelligent movement systems”
Session 3 – “Scanning an enemy”
Session 4 – “Gunning systems”
Session 5 – “A Guide to Further Improvement”
Session 6 – 7 – “Implement and prepare!”
Session 8 – “Royal Rumble!”
It is advised that you attend each of the first four sessions at a minimum.
The following ones will allow you to test your robot and improve it with mentor guidance.
You will need to bring your own laptop, and be happy for the robocode software package to be downloaded onto your machines.
For best results work on your project at home. When you come back to the club you can work through any problems with the mentors..
