Overview

Robotathon is an annually competition aimed towards incoming freshman interested in robotics. This year’s theme was Pokémon. The competition challenge was to build an autonomous robot that could pick up pokeballs and carry them to a Pokémon to capture them. The competition points were based on who got the most Pokémon and pokeballs with in a 3 minute time slot. The competition occurred on November 21st, 2016.

 

Design

The finalized robot consisted of 2 servos as the main driving mechanisms, a ball bearing for back stability, 2 IR distance sensors for wall following and a IR line following array chip. A flap mechanism was created to retain the Pokeball when it was within the robot’s possession. It was all controlled by a Texas Instruments Launchpad TM4C Tiva C series microcontroller.
