DMC-Sponsored Northwestern Design Competition a Success!

DMC sponsored Northwestern University's Design Competition once again this year and the turnout and competition were once again amazing.

What Went Down?

The competition included 12 fully autonomous robots competing head-to-head in a challenge that involved scooping up balls and tossing them into another robot's playing field to score points.

Aspects of this competition required finding balls, detecting their color, and all of the logic and sensors required to maneuver a robot around a course with no human intervention.

DMC has hired three past champions of Design Competition, including David Simons, Dan Aukes, and myself (Jody Koplo).

A video from this year's winning team can be seen here:
