This packet contains a description of resources and materials required to augment an existing computer laboratory with robot building facilities. The augmented laboratory can be used in an undergraduate Artificial Intelligence (AI) course. This resource kit includes a paper describing our experiences, specific details on equipment and materials required, as well as sample laboratory exercises from our first offering of the AI course. More up-to-date materials can be accessed via the world-wide-web pages listed at the end. For more information, please feel free to contact the authors.


This resource kit was prepared as a document distributed at ACM SIGCSE 1998, Atlanta, GA in the NSF/ILI Project Demonstrations.
