Tarek Abdelwareth, an undergraduate studying Computer Engineering at Nile University in Egypt, shared with us a very cool ROBOTC project he put together with his team called Human Vs. Robot: Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
The robot was designed using only LEGO MINDSTORM parts and a white board pen then programmed in ROBOTC with more than 1500 lines of code. We asked Tarek to share some information about the robot …
“It took me and my team about a week to build the design and a month to complete the code of all programming stages we set. We participated in the WRO (World Robotics Olympiad) with this robot in the Open Category (Senior-High) last year. Our team got the first place in Egypt and the 10th place worldwide.
The robot in the video is actually an old version by the way; there has been much improvements in the programming that made it faster and efficient. Plus, the algorithm of thinking and playing has improved that the robot simply never lose now.”
