SPDL Happy Fun Ball: Colon Blow

Posted May 16, 2012 by Chris

“Students were asked to build an autonomous robot capable of playing ‘SPDL Happy Fun Ball’. SPDLHFB is played on a large flat field, which has at its center a ball dispenser. Robots must request balls from the dispenser, then either launch them or transport them to one of three goals at the perimeter of the field. The objective is to score as many points as possible in 2 minutes of play, or until the ball dispenser runs out of balls.”
