Robofest 2005 Warm-up Competition

 

Unlike other robotics competitions, Robofest competition requires to construct and program two autonomous robots that will work together to solve missions on a playing field that can change during the competition. This year’s challenge is called "RoboRelay." In the relay, two robots must pass a ball over a gap as well as several other complex objectives, which must use feedback loop control, not just dead-reckoning.

 

Prior to the qualifying regional competitions, Lawrence Technological University hosts a Warm-up competition on Saturday, March 19, 2005 from 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.  It is a great opportunity for new teams, future teams, regional site hosts, volunteers, and new judges to see how the Robofest competition works.  

 

If you are interested in volunteering for the warm-up event, please go to  http://admin.robofest.org/index.jsp?siteID=33 to sign up online. There are various positions available.
