My first entry into the international robotics competition, Eurobot, was with Darren Lewis, as part of the mechatronics module in the 2nd year of my degree. In 2009, the challenge was to autonomously collect small pucks from the table and transport them to construction areas to build towers. The higher the tower, the more points were gained.
As a team, we came first in the UK Finals, and 22nd in the World Finals, held in La Ferte Bernard, France.
