The Soul Annoyed Robot: A Senior Project Report, Dayton Andrew Muxlow, Christian Johansen Jun 2019

The Soul Annoyed Robot: A Senior Project Report, Dayton Andrew Muxlow, Christian Johansen

Computer Engineering

Our goal for this senior project was to create a competitive robot designed to com- pete in Roborodentia 2019. Our project started during the Winter 2019 quarter, and ended with the competition on May 18, 2019. During that time, we developed an accurate solenoid shooting mechanism, an elevated conveyor belt to carry poker chips, and a servo arm to scoop in stacks of poker chips. These hardware compo- nents were attached to a circular differential-drive wooden base designed to be easy to control. We also planned out our match strategy and implemented this strategy with software written in C/Wiring ...

Roborodentia Final Report, Trevor James Gesell, Zeph Colby Nord, Mitchell Tyler Myjak

Computer Engineering

The Senior Project consisted of competing in Roborodentia, a competition in which groups build robots to complete a particular task. This event took place at the Cal Poly Open House on Saturday, April 12th, 2018. For the competition, the robot was to collect Nerf balls from supply tubes raised approximately 7” from the board and shoot them into nets placed along the opposite side of the course. The design, manufacture, and testing of the robot began the first week of Cal Poly winter quarter and lasted until the day of the competition.

Roborodentia 2016: Scorpion, Tyler Whalen

Computer Engineering

This report showcases my entry into the Roborodentia 2016 competition, and my senior project. I chose this project because robotics has always interested me, and this was a great opportunity to jump in headfirst.

I will step through my design decisions and detail all information necessary for replicating this build.

Computer Engineering

The Roborodentia 2015 competition was a ring based challenge that had participants move PVC rings from one side of a course to another all within 3 minutes. In order to succeed in this competition there needs to be a good robotic design, thought out use cases, and good solid software.

Pl-x is the name of the robot that will be competing in Roborodentia, an annual autonomous robot competition. This year the competition involves moving rings from one end of a course to the opposite end of the course.


California Polytechnic State University Senior Project Winter-Spring 2012, Roborodentia Xvii, Stack-E, Alejandro Ignacio, Austin Hobbs Jun 2012

California Polytechnic State University Senior Project Winter-Spring 2012, Roborodentia Xvii, Stack-E, Alejandro Ignacio, Austin Hobbs

Computer Engineering

The main goal for our project is to design and build a functional autonomous robot that is capable of navigating an open arena while avoiding obstacles, as well as identify other objects or cans on the field. It must also be capable of stacking and containing these cans. Deliverables will include the fully assembled robot chassis containing the essential hardware components needed to accomplish the navigation and movement, as well as capabilities like identification of objects and stacking of cans. Alongside the hardware, there will also be software developed to showcase these capabilities of the robot design, including the vision ...

Roborodentia 2012 is a competition where students and alumni could build an autonomous robot to perform a certain task for points. This report is about Robotron, the 3rd place winner of this competition, and how it came to be.


Cpe Senior Project Final Report: Roborodentia 2012 - Team Street Sweeper, Jason Miller, David Pascale Jun 2012

Cpe Senior Project Final Report: Roborodentia 2012 - Team Street Sweeper, Jason Miller, David Pascale

Computer Engineering

The Street Sweeper was a multi-disciplinary, autonomous robotics project constructed to compete in Cal Poly's Roborodentia XVII in 2012. The goal of the competition was to collect painted cat food cans in the team's goal area, with bonus points for stacking the cans. Street Sweeper was very much a budget robot, but due to good planning and strategy, managed to place 2nd in the competition.

Android Powered Autonomous Robot, Dennis Cagle, Zachary Negrey

Computer Engineering

The goal of this Senior Project was to create an autonomous robot powered by an Android phone to compete in Roborodentia 2012. In order to accomplish this task, we used the Android Open Accessory Development Kit (Android ADK) to interface an Android phone with a custom Arduino microcontroller (Arduino Mega) designed by Google. The project contained design and implementation of hardware, electronic devices, and software.

Computer Engineering

RoboRodentia is an annual school-wide robotics competition that has been held during Cal Poly’s Open House for the past thirteen years. The competition rules change from year to year as the objective of the competition changes, but an important aspect of the competition is that the robots run completely autonomously. This paper describes the development, design, and implementation of the RoboRodentia robot from Team Vikis. The technical specifications, robot components, individual responsibilities, and results are described in depth within this document.

Computer Engineering

Woody is a fully autonomous robot built and designed for the 2011 Cal Poly Roborodentia competition. Woody’s goal is to score the most points in the competition by navigating the competition field, efficiently collecting ping pong balls from the racks, and shooting the balls into the goal accurately. There was no specific budget set for the project, but costs were kept low by using tools from the Computer Engineering Capstone Lab, inexpensive materials such as wood, and reusable parts from robots from previous Roborodentia competitions.
