2 Why Robot Shove for Learning? Dynamic environment – Opponent is moving – Bottle may be moving Unknown environment – Location of bottle is unknown – Lighting condition is unknown – Table color is partially known – … 2

3 STEM learning Goals Physical Science – Newtons laws – Force, Mass, Velocity, and Acceleration – Friction – Gears Sensors Computer Programming 3

4 Qualifying: Object Detection Testing We will first test if the robot detects the bottle We will record the time to take to push the bottle off the table; Team rank will be determined Also judges will mark the side of the robot that has working sensor(s) to detect the object Teams may compete, even if it does not succeed in this test The team rank is used to make Double Elimination Tournament Brackets with Seeds 4
