Robot Project

The ME 2011 Robot Project is a chance for students to be creative, to face a substantial challenge, to show off, and to stretch themselves as designers. Each student is charged with building a computer-controlled, autonomous machine that "does something useful."The definition of "useful" is up to the student and the results are always unexpected, clever and just plain fun.  The remainder of this web site is to help ME 2011 students with their project, but the information be of interest to anyone building a robot.
