Abstract

The Vex Robotics Team is an E-Prize competition team. The team is comprised of students of all class standings and from all the colleges on campus. They competes in the VexU competition circuit in the state of Arizona and the competition this year is called Toss Up and is played on a 12 ft by 12 ft field. The game involves the moving or tossing of game elements, which for this year are large 16' diameter beach balls and 5' diameter bucky balls, into several different goal zones on the field. The game is played between two teams, each with two robots.

For this years planning, building, and testing stage we used the Engineering Design Process to help guide us in solving the problem at hand. Using this method we were able to construct, program, and test our two robots for competition.

The team will be competing on March 1st, 2014 in Tempe, Arizona.
