That is the platform for an upcoming competition among students in the Artificial Intelligence class at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
The competition is at 2 p.m. Tuesday (April 19) in Otto Olsen building, room 224.
Eleven students on three teams will use robots they’ve built and programmed, and go up against each other in a golf competition. The objective of the contest is to design an autonomous robot that can play miniature golf after “looking at” or running upon a map of the hole.
The event is a tune up for the Midwest Instruction and Computing Symposium (MICS) at the University of Northern Iowa on Friday and Saturday (April 22-23).
“Students see and interact with multi-robotics architectures, attend presentations and meet with other faculty and students in a six state region,” said Cate Anderson, computer science and information technology lecturer. “These activities provide a great breadth and depth experience in the concepts of artificial intelligence and computer science.”
UNK CSIT students have competed in the MICS competition the past 10 years, winning in 2013.
