The Electronics Department is hosting the 12th annual Wisconsin Technical College System Robotics Competition on Saturday, May 11, in the Cafeteria Mall at the Truax Campus.
Teams from Madison College and other WTCS schools will participate in the competition. Students are tasked with creating a robot that operates both autonomously and driver controlled for different missions.
During the morning (9 a.m.-12 p.m.), each team will present their design and challenges throughout the spring semester to a panel of judges. Each team is scored on the presentation and robot build. In the afternoon (1-4 p.m.), the teams will deploy their robots on four challenges. This year’s challenges include a race with a speed bump, candle-run, robo-buckets and a driver-controlled slalom course. In the candle-run event, robots are to autonomously detect the difference between white and black candles and only extinguish the black candles. In the robo-buckets event, the robot is tasked with autonomously collecting ping-pong balls and then shooting them into buckets.
Spectators are welcome during all portions of the day.
