  • Ohio State's 21st Annual Robotics Competition, The Ohio State University

    Open to public. Teams of three to four Ohio State engineering students will set their robots in motion around a student-built 12-square-foot course that simulates a base of operations in a desolate Arctic area. The fully autonomous robots have just two minutes to perform specific tasks, including restoring the main power by raising a utility pole, delivering supplies to a maintenance building, communicating the outside weather conditions to the base and restarting an oil pumping station. The robots are limited in size to a 9-square-inch footprint and constructed of various materials, including sheet metal, PVC, acrylic, plywood and Erector set components. https://engineering.osu.edu/news/2015/04/competition-best-performing-robot-held-april-11
