Robotics competition preps UNK students for Midwest symposium

WHAT: UNK Robotics Competition

ABOUT: Students in the Artificial Intelligence class at the University of Nebraska at Kearney 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 annual Midwest Instruction and Computing Symposium (MICS) at The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse April 7-8.
