The Pellet Dispensing Competition ended yesterday; what a great competition! It was a lot of fun designing a robot to work in a real factory with non-LEGO elements. You can see a couple videos of my robot below:
An overview of the robot:
A short test run of the robot dispensing 241 pellets. Notice that, if you divide the video's time (159.65 seconds) by the number of pellets dispensed, you find that the average time per drop is .662 seconds; only 4 thousandths of a second off!
