Enter the maze

Seesaw robots

Ringmaster software

In this project, Sammy, supervised by Peter McOwan built two robots from Lego Mindstorm kits and developed software to allow the robots to communicate with one another to "play on a seesaw". The project also involved some carpentry to build the seesaw!. The software to run on the robots was challenging, the code needs to be compact and allow the robots to react quickly. To finish it all off, Sammy wrote the Ringmaster program shown, which allowed him to control the robots and make them seesaw or stop as required.

Sammy went on to work for the Ford Motor Company
