Autonomous Robot Design
This is a program I am now enrolled in during
the independent activites period (IAP) at MIT. This program is PHAT --- in other
words --- this program is an intense, ludicrously fast paced, mind blowing
course where ingenuity, creativity, design, team unity, and a will of steel
can lead to immense discovery and a robust robot.... not to mention sound
pounding of the competition! It is about 4 weeks long. So what is it? In
short, we design a fully autonomous robot out of legos, circuits, sensors,
engines, and programming. We are talking on board computer, 60 seconds of
mayhem, victory.... and tons and tons of lego. Excited yet?

This year, the teams must
design an autonomous chicken...... Yeah, that's right, I said chicken. See, apparently we are in the not to distanst future where everything is autonomous... except da chickens. They are running rampant. Our objective is to design an autonomous chicken that can take over. There are approximately 60 teams. The battle field is a table. Opposing teams can choose one location of four to place an obstacle in the enemy's path. The objective is to score the most points by gettng your eggs into the chutes. The higher your eggs in the chute, the more points you get.
