The 2015 IEEE Southeast Conference Hardware Competition is designed to bring together universities in IEEE’s region 3 in friendly intercollegiate robotics competition. This year, the competition involves a white line on a black background that leads to four traditional road trip games. The games, and how they are played, include playing Simon for 15 seconds, writing IEEE on an Etch a Sketch, turning the top row of a Rubik’s cube 180 degrees and picking up a playing card off the top of the deck and bringing it to the finish line. These tasks are to be completed autonomously by a robot, with no input during a competition run, that has to fit within a 1ftx1ftx1ft cube and the judges must be able to see the games being played. Research went into completing the tasks themselves, integrating these tasks onto a single platform, as well as the design and organization process the team would use to complete the task. This project has been a rigorous lesson in the application of engineering principles to a real world problem. The team has made outstanding progress toward the goal of designing and building a competitive robot for the April 9th competition while remaining on time and on budget with all milestones met along the way.
