MAI Cup in Markt Indersdorf!

The MAI Cup competition took place in Markt Indersdorf! It was for the first time that we hosted our own competition. And there were four teams competing: MAI senior, MAI junior, Fos/Bos Ingolstadt and team Schrottbot. We had music, a lot to eat and even more fun! 🙂 Each robot had to pass a homologation … MAI Cup in Markt Indersdorf! weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Preparing for the Competition

This week we soldered the electrical power supply, again. We tested the bot and adjusted the data of parts like the color sensor. We agreed on using the line detection only if we will be able to turn left or right. The magnetic sensor will only show us the short path, not drive into it. … MAI Cup Junior: Preparing for the Competition weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Testing Stalled

This week not everything went as we hoped. For example, we hoped our bot would drive through the test maze with not many problems, but one infrared sensor didn’t work, because the hole was too small. So we fixed that issue. But the next problem was, that we couldn’t test again in school, because one … MAI Cup Junior: Testing Stalled weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Many Problems Solved

In the holydays we finally wired up our new rechargeable battery, which now works really well. We also worked on our idea about the line following mode, so we can concentrate on it if it’s necessary. This code snippet also works really well, so we had extra time to set up a nice hole for … MAI Cup Junior: Many Problems Solved weiterlesen

The jury especially praised our ongoing commitment that has been lasting for over two years by now! Thank you! 🙂 We were invited to a award ceremony in Berlin. We enjoyed a get-together evening … Sustainable Development: Awarded Third Place! weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: New Plans to Detect Lines

This week we’ve worked on the accuracy of the color sensor by creating a diagram. We also created a script which shows us when our sensor can detect a line and when it can’t. Now we can see which figure goes with which colour. We’ve also came up with a new idea to follow the … MAI Cup Junior: New Plans to Detect Lines weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Still Fighting the Color Sensor

This week we focused on installing the color sensor, so we soldered the cables and wired it up. We also changed the code so we can see its output, the color values, right away. Now the only things left to do is to test it on the black lines and on the final zone, then … MAI Cup Junior: Still Fighting the Color Sensor weiterlesen

MAI Cup Senior: Moving Towards the Competition

As seen in the videos we are currently testing the robot in different situations and improving the code accordingly. We think we could run into some problems with the infrared sensors, but we will find a solution for that. We still must implement the hall sensors for the magnet detection and add that into the … MAI Cup Senior: Moving Towards the Competition weiterlesen
