Step #1: Permits and Fees
Ensure you have:
Note: College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee though they still must have a CoE permit.
Step #2: Talk to Student Staff
Find a Makerspace student staff member (they’re wearing a black apron). They can typically be found around the makerspace. They don’t bite I promise! Tell them that you want to check out a robotics & ML item at the checkout window.

Google AIY Kits
Google offers maker kits to learn the basics of machine learning! We have voice and vision kits that run machine learning inference on the device. It’s a hackable device and geared toward beginners and makers.
Segway Robotics Loomo
Loomo provides an easy to use API to incorporate computer vision and robotic controls. You’ll have to make an Android app, since Loomo is a Segway with an android tablet strapped to its head. Luckily Google has great documentation. See the link below
