CMPE-118/L Mechatronics Public Demo, SLUG WARS: The Last Slug-I

Description: 

Watch robots compete in the Mechatronics Public Demo! Cheer on their sleep-deprived creators as they run their ‘bots through the field. Thrill to battles between autonomous robots navigating the field to find their AT-M6 targets, and score points by shooting their ping pong ball ammo through the holes to destroy them; when all are destroyed, the Kylo Ren ship is vulnerable, and must be destroyed with a precision shot! Come see this exciting SLUG WARS competition!

The Mechatronics class is having their public demonstration of their final design project, SLUG WARS: The Last Slug-I, Friday 8-Dec-2017 at 6:15 PM in the UCSC Media Theater.

In this thrilling competition, teams from UCSC's Mechatronics course will pit their autonomous robots against each other in an epic SLUG WARS battle. Each robotic champion will attempt to locate three perimeter targets,destroy them with ping pong ball ammo, until the final target is illuminated and destroyed with a precision shot. The champions will compete in a wild head to head tournament, until one robot emerges victorious!

The public is invited (you might have to duck a few ping-pong balls) and the teams will be on hand to explain their designs to one and all. Come see what these students have accomplished in 10 weeks and cheer on the competition.
