Electronics course in Southampton

Last week I attended a Computing and Micro-electronics course at Southampton university.

We worked in teams of 5 to build a completely autonomous robot capable of fetching blocks and taking them home to base, navigating and spotting blocks by means of a webcam. The video above shows my team’s robot in the competition at the end of the week, against three other robots in the same arena. Within my team, I was responsible for the programming of our bot.

After a lot of hard work and midnight GitHub commits we came second out of ten.
