Programming run from the robot’s POV – 55 points!

Bethany strapped her drone to the top of our next successful robot design, and captured this footage of the program scoring 55 points from the robot’s perspective! This program, and our skills at driving the improved robot design, moved us steadily up the World Skills Rankings, and at one point we were ranked 10th in the world.

Early November programming test run (in robotics lab)

We could reliably score 31 points in programming matches with our first competition robot design. This program, combined with our driving skills, moved us up to about 75th in the world and earned us a trophy for Programming Skills Champion.
