  • This article presents program development and analysis of a creative robot school for elementary school at the local university. The purpose of opening the creative robot school is to give motivation to children for having interests in science and engineering at their young ages. The creative robot school program is developed by using facilities of a local university to spread scientific knowledge to young children in their communities to draw their interests in science as well as an engineering field for future careers. Since the robot system is a popular subject to draw attention of children and has a relation with Mechatronics Engineering, a program related with robots is selected for educating children. College students are also involved in helping children to build robots within a given time. Experiences and self-evaluations from the previously held creative robot schools at Chungnam National University(CNU) are presented to share with.

  • This paper presents the results of a study on the optimal footpad design for vertical climbing on acrylic surfaces with various curvatures used Taguchi methods. For a climbing robot, the adhesion system plays an important role in the climbing process. Only an appropriate adhesion strength will prevent the robot from falling and allow it to climb normally. Therefore, the footpad is a significant parameter for a climbing robot and should be studied. Taguchi methods were used to obtain a robust optimal design, where the design variables were the flat tacky elastomeric shape, area, thickness, and foam thickness of the footpad. Experiments were conducted using acrylic surfaces with various curvatures. An optimized footpad was selected based on the results of the experiments and analysis, and the stability of the wall-climbing robot was verified.

  • Elementary school students should have many opportunities to find their abilities and talents. However, informatics education in Korea does not target the entire elementary school students, opportunities for informatics education are given only to some students. Unlike possibilities to find mathematics gifted students and science gifted students, opportunities to find informatics gifted students are very limited. This study aims to solve current problems through a robot education program based on SEM(Schoolwide Enrichment Model). Using modified curriculum and school enrichment cluster, robot programming education is implemented at the pilot school. The result shows that robot education program based on SEM improved creative potentials of elementary school students.

  • The purpose of this study is to develop a subject integration robot programming instruction model to improve information gifted elementary students' creativity. For this goal, we have developed a subject integration robot programming instruction model and verified its effectiveness. The developed instruction model was applied to the 5th and 6th grade elementary school students. The developed model was applied to the experimental group and ordinary robot programming instruction model was applied to the comparison group. As a result, the model was significantly enhance students' creative disposition and creative cognitive abilities. According to these results, it has been proved that the subject integration robot programming instruction model is effective to the information gifted elementary students' creative disposition and creative cognition abilities.

  • Refer ta the current state of optional curriculums and information related classes in elementary schools, the number of schools and classes, which is related in information education, is constantly reducing in recent 3 years. It is anticipated that the status of information education in school will get lower, because the extra-curricular activity is planned ta be changed with creative experience activity in revised education curriculum 2009, which is published by the ministry of education, science and technology. Moreover, the current state of information education in schools cannot actively handle the social changes and requirements but keep the old curriculums. This study explains the effectiveness and the examples of creative personality and fluency using educational robot in creative experience activity. We also tried ta find the probability of robot utilizing education as an expanded information education area in elementary school.

  • Currently, the robot is widely utilized in various educational settings such as after-school classes, and special classes for gifted students. The robot is widely recognized as a useful tool for helping students solve problems. The core activities of programming learning with robot need to provide various problem contexts to the students and guide students' problem solving process. Students gain cognitive and affective benefits when they solve problems with robots. This paper describes the impact of programming learning using robot based on schoolwide enrichment model on elementary school students' creative potential. As a result, the students of experimental group than the students of the control group improved creative personality and ideational behavior, and the gifted students of experimental group than the gifted students of control group improved ideational behavior.

  • In this paper, we have researched about how to detect the fish robot objects in aquarium. We had used designed fish robots DOMI ver1.0, which had researched and developed for aquarium underwater robot. The model of the robot fish is analysis to maximize the momentum of the robot fish and the body of the robot is designed through the analysis of the biological fish swimming. We are planned to non-external equipment to find the position and manipulated the position using creating boundary to fish robot to detect the fish robot objects. Also, we focused the detecting fish robot in aquarium by using boundary algorithm. In order to the find the object boundary, it is filtering the video frame to picture frames and changing the RGB to gray. Then, applied the boundary algorithm stand of equations which operates the boundary for objects. We called these procedures is kind of image processing that can distinguish the objects and background in the captured video frames. It was confirmed that excellent performance in the field test such as filtering image, object detecting and boundary algorithm.

  • In this paper, the designed fish robot is researched and developed for aquarium underwater robot. This paper is a study on how the outside technology merely to find the location of fish robots without specific sensor or internal devices. This model is designed to detect the position of the Robotic Fish in the Mat lab and Simulink. This intends to recognize the shape of the tank via a video device such as a camera or camcorder using an image processing technique to identify the location of the robotic fishes. Here, we are applied the two methods, one is Hom - Schunk Method and second one is newly proposed method that is the comparing image data algorithm. The Horn - Schunck Method is used to obtain the velocity for each pixel in the image and the comparing image data algorithm is proposed to obtain the position with comparing two video frames and assumes a constant velocity in each video frame.
