What is RoboSlam?
RoboSlam is an ultra low-cost robot building workshop for beginners using real electronic components. Our aim is to create a recipe for a €10 robot that’s easy to build and easy to teach others to build.

Kevin Gaughan has contributed the photos her took during the week of “Engineering Your Future” at TU Dublin. Thanks, Kevin, for sharing these!
Fortunately, Damon had his smartphone at the ready on Friday, at the point where our “Engineering Your Future” Transition Year students participating in BioSlam got their electronics built, coded, and working successfully. A gallery of photos by Damon is below.
Thanks to Kevin Gaughan for images from earlier in the week….
Today, 40 secondary school students from the greater Dublin area learned to build their own ultra-low-cost heart rate monitors using the Arduino Nano. The signal we measured is called the photoplethysmogram (PPG). We detected small changes in blood vessel dilation caused by … Continue reading
We have about 40 Transition Year students visiting us at TU Dublin this week to learn about engineering. Tomorrow we’ll be in the electronics labs doing a BioSlam (see the page https://roboslam.wordpress.com/bioslam-ppg/ for instructions). While Ted Burke and others were … Continue reading
At this year’s Dublin Maker fair in Merrion Square, TU Dublin’s School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering hosted two booths: one on Co-design for technologies to increase access to folks with varying capabilities, and the second on the theme “Timewarp … Continue reading
