Bet the Farm: BEST 2016                          Print

Welcome to the Bet the Farm challenge for BEST Robotics!

The challenge this year is themed around farm technology. The team is tasked with creating a robot that can complete tasks including collecting corn, farming lettuce, gathering tomatoes, planting seeds, watering fields, and corralling pigs.

In this competition, each team is provided with a kit that has all the materials for their robot that they are allowed to use. This year’s kit included items such as wood, screws, and the VEX Cortex and controller to control the robot with. Along with this kit, each team received software such as Simulink and RobotC.
