BotKits 4WD research chassis bot wins at Robothon 2016!
The inaugural Pop Can Challenge ran at Robothon 2016. This challenge is focused on autonomous bots working within a simulated apartment space, with a primary goal of retrieving of a can of pop from a mini-refrigerator in the "kitchen" and delivering that can of pop to the coffee table in the "living room". In this first iteration of the Pop Can challenge, none of the robots entered were able to retrieve the can of pop. One of our research chassis, equipped with the optional active bumper module, an Arduino main processor, an IonMC RoboClaw 15A motor controller, an HC-SR04 sonar sensor combined with the...
Prototype Arduino board
We have our first set of prototype Arduino boards in house, and are starting assembly and testing. This is the first board out of the reflow oven. We should have these boards running on our Arduino robot chassis within the next week. Very excited to get these tested out and readied for production!
