The development of robotics is a challenge to make the Industry 4.0 real. The entire society might change due to a revolution in which dynamism stands out. Robots and humans may interact directly in their activities, so the machine's behavior must set security as paramount. This project aims to model, simulate, and control an IEEE VSSS category robot to develop a scale model applicable in dynamic environments. The simulation aims to replicate the robot environment interaction to make it easier to design the motor control embarked system. The students of the UFSCar Red Dragons Team design the low-cost robots of limited size.
