A Virtual Robotics Education and Competition Platform
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
To democratize robotics education by providing a cloud-based robotics development and competition platform for high schools and HigherEd.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Riders is a platform which enables virtual robotics education and global competitions and allows collaboration with the community.
Riders eliminates the barriers of robotics development with high investment costs, large scale application, and long development cycles by providing testing and simulating infrastructure. Offering robotics development tools, competitions, courses, and hardware integration makes it easier for teachers to provide robotics education.
How has it been spreading?
Riders is being used by 9 universities and 7 high schools for classes, creating project groups and collaborating in between students. Riders has become a member of AWS EdStart US Program in 2020. Our success will be partially based on the number of users involved in our platform, the participation of 1 million robotic developers in the platform within 2 years, and their active participation in our robotics competitions and developing projects in the field of robotics.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
Riders can collaborate with educational institutions, robotics clubs, and individual organizations that want to teach robotics courses and organize a robotics competition.
Riders will provide online lessons to the participants according to their prior robotics
knowledge and the competition difficulty.
