2011 Midwest SRS RoboMagellan Competition

This year’s SRS RoboMagellan competition truly pitted man & machine against forces of nature such as grass, trees and clouds. Chibots welcomed four brave competitors and their fantastic creations to the 2011 Midwest SRS RoboMagellan Competition held at Moraine Valley Community College at Palos Hills,  Illinois. We thank this college for allowing our event to be hosted at their campus. The competitors were:

We will be streaming the meeting live via UStream. Will this work? Will the experiment be successful? We don't know! Tune in and find out!

Team Conehead

Robot is designed for these contests: 

This is the SRS RoboMagellan entry for Team Conehead (Eddy Wright, Stuart Hecht, Glen Aidukas, and John Kjellman).  The base is a custom tank style (i.e. uses treads for propulsion) with sonar, touch and camera sensors.  The processing is performed by a small form factor PC and a Wright Hobbies DevBoard with an Atmel ATMEGA 1284P chip.
