Go Home Robot was created to mine "botcoins" during the 2014 ME210: Introduction to Mechatronics challenge. Using IR beacons and lines on the field of play, our robot needed to, autonomously, request coins from a server and deposit them into repositories. While we (narrowly) lost in the competition, our robot performed surprisingly well, given its short development cycle.
My focus was on the robot's hardware design. Laser-cut acrylic formed the basis for each level of the design, giving us the flexibility to refine component placement quickly and easily.
We also created a website to document our robot and its performance, which can be found here.
