I was chosen to participate in a pilot program for my University during first year. Instead of doing the traditional LEGO NX project we were given an Arduino, parts and access to the machine shop. In groups of four we were tasked with creating a line follower obstacle avoiding robot. I designed/built the chassis and did the majority of the electrical. Another team member made the CAD drawings and another wrote the code. Our robot placed 3rd out of about 50 that participated.
