Building Board of Education Robot

As part of an Electrical and Computer Engineering project, I created a robot that was able to perform several tasks. The robot acted as a “judge” in a robotics Olympic Games. As the judge, it was able to determine the score: silver, gold, or bronze by travelling a certain path and detecting the object that represented a certain score. Additionally, the robot was able to communicate scores with other robots and display the overall calculated score on an LCD screen that was placed on the robot. There were several sensors that were added and coded into the robot using the Arduino software. It was a fun experience to build the robot and eventually make it perform the desired tasks and communicate efficiently with other robots.
