Bullfighting droids faced off in a student robotics competition at UC Santa Cruz, the final project for students in the Introduction to Mechatronics class taught by Gabriel Elkaim, associate professor of computer engineering in the Baskin School of Engineering. The students work in teams to build a "droid" or robot that can act both as a bull, to "gore" the toreador by ramming it, and as a toreador, to place "banderillas" (ping-pong balls) into a target on the back of the charging bull.
