LIDAR Robot Competition Award Presentation 2021

During the Spring 2021 semester, Stevens Institute of Technology modified their existing freshman robotics course to include a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) System component. 150 teams of 3 students each collaborated to build an autonomous robot, 3D print a platform to hold ultrasonic sensors, and then program the robot in C++ to avoid 4 obstacles in an arena (which simulated the Stevens campus) and traverse the arena to 4 labeled locations in 120 seconds using LIDAR.  The robots were required to get within 2 inches of the targets.
