Teams will have the opportunity to be challenged on a near regulation 2018 Botball Game Board.

Modified rules will be released at the beginning of the day.

What can I do now to help prepare?

Look at the current board and see what skills you would need to be able to succeed.

This might include:

  • grabbing dates (design a claw)
  • moving bins
  • moving date crates
  • Line following (reflecting sensors)
  • ET sensor
  • Understanding of how to use a sensor (light) to start your robot:
    • The light sensor is a cool way to automatically start your robot and critical for Botball robots at the beginning of the game.
    • The wait_for_light() function allows your program to run when your robot senses a light.
    • Note: It has a built-in calibration routine that will come up on the screen
      (a step-by-step guide for this calibration routine is on a following slide).
    • The light sensor senses infrared light, so light must be emitted from an incandescent light, not an LED light.
    • For our activities, you can use a flashlight.

    The more light (infrared) detected, the lower the reported valueint main()



    printf(I see the light!\n);

    return 0;
