Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

1 Noob

Noob - You will be required to put together a robotics kit. Necessary parts are included and steps will be easy to follow. You also might encounter basic robotics components like bearings, mounts, or other hardware and need a general idea of how it goes together.

2 Rookie

Rookie - You will be required to know some basics about motors, basic motor drivers and how simple robotic motion can be accomplished.

3 Competent

Competent - You may need an understanding of servo motors and how to drive them. Additionally, you may need some fundamental understanding of motor controllers.

4 Experienced

Experienced - Your experiences should include working with stepper motors and feedback system. You may need to understand how encoders and more complex control systems work.

5 Expert

Expert - In addition to having a solid foundation in robotics, you will need to know how sensors integrate with complex robotic systems. You will need to understand how to implement IMUs, UAV controllers, etc.
