Challenge Statement:

A team of robots must locate a number of items from a warehouse of material. A map of the warehouse and material retreival locations are available, but not specifics of materials at locations. Robots must retrieve their order.

Procedure

  1. Build at least two robots with actuators.
  2. Robots should coordinate tasks in order.

Technology Requirements

  • 2 or more Robot Contollers
  • Actuators to retrieve objects.

Optional Add-Ons

This is a good lab to use two methods of task distribution

  • Method 1: Each robot is given a ‘shopping list’. While looking for their own items, they can broadcast the location of other items they come across for other robots who may need that item.
  • Method 2: Each robot checks against a master robot with a complete list for each item it inspects.
