2010-2011 ME 72 Engineering Design Laboratory and Competition

Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 1-3pm at Beckman Mall
2011

The Mission

Design, build, and deploy a team of vehicles that will traverse difficult terrain in order to:

  • Gather a variety of recyclables
  • Correctly sort recyclables into bins
  • Return your vehicles to the start zone by the end of each heat.

The Challenge

The contest was a double-elimination tournament, in which teams of three or four students competed in head-to-head heats. Each team had 45 seconds to place their system within a “starting zone,” and then a 5 minute period during which all of the scoring took place.
