The goal of the project is to allow students to gain hands-on experience in designing and building a complex engineering system that responds to dynamic changes while working as part of a team and practicing proper project management. Teams from EGR 345 will build separate robots. These robots will deliver mail packages into mail boxes (or pockets), which are set on vertical walls of a mail room. The pockets are spread horizontally and vertically over a variety of different locations on the walls of a mail room and can change from an opened to a closed configuration randomly. The robots are to identify the open boxes and deliver a pre-defined number of packages per pocket autonomously, in a timely manner. This will require proper positioning and direction changes accordingly. The control system of the robot should be able to detect
the open pockets and handle positioning of the robot to deliver packages appropriately. The robots will carry practice golf balls as packages and drop them in the open pockets. Each team will be provided the opportunity to run one time during the preliminary competition and two times during the actual competition. The three runs will be counted.

There were seven teams and my project team consisted of Derek Marshall, Travis Lankheet, and Chris Koppenaal. Thank you for your hard work. Difficult but fun project!
