March 09, 2017

Caltech's 32nd Annual Engineering Design Competition (ME 72) featured teams of robots and their handlers battling for the best times navigating a "Robstacle Course." The V15TA team—Yunsang Choi, Mayra Melendez, Allison Penn, Eduardo Plascencia, and William Yu—won first place by having its robots successfully traverse 27 pylons, a seesaw, and a ramp to deliver a ball into a hole at the end of the course. [Slideshow of the event] [Video of the event]
