We present a methodology for deriving design methodology for autonomous robots. We designed this methodology in the context of a robotics course in high schools. The motivation for designing this new methodology was improving the robots' robustness and reliability and preparing students for becoming better designers. The new methodology proved to be highly successful in designing top quality robots. In the methodology design, we explored and adapted design methods to the specific designers, the nature of the product, the environment, the product needs, and the design context goals. At the end of this comprehensive design, we selected a synergetic integration of six methods to compose the methodology for this product context: conceptual design, fault tolerant design, atomic requirements, using fuzzy logic for the control of robotics systems, creative thinking method, and microprogramming design.
