Project Abstract:

Six teams of three engineering students will each design and build a small autonomous mobile robot that will play a game of "capture the flag" in an arena. The robot must conform to a set of rules and regulations to allow team games to be played with other robots. The final competition will feature games where a pair of robots will need to cooperate while competing against two other robots.

Students from the Dept. of Electronics and the Dept. of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University will work together within the teams. Two design positions (electrical and software) and a managerial & system design position are available, with all students contributing to design and construction components outside their field of expertise.

The course is a major project in engineering analysis, design, development and research. The objective is to provide an opportunity to develop initiative, self-reliance, creative ability and engineering judgement. A project proposal, weekly team meetings, several interim reports, two design reviews, an oral presentation, a technical demonstration, and a comprehensive final report are required.
