The Brawl Bots program is new for the 2020-2021 school year. Design, fabricate, and compete your robot against fellow students. Official rules and schedule (and COVID-19 plans) are coming soon! For now: try to keep it under one pound and mostly 3D printed.
DO IT YOURSELF
The Brawl Bots program is designed to be a self paced intro to "full-stack" robotics. Start by making a 3D model. Use our sample control system or design your own. Develop and refine controls software. And compete against your fellow students.
RASPBERRY PI CONTROLLER
As electronics can be a daunting task, we have developed and documented a controls system to get people up to speed. The hardware is a Raspberry Pi Zero W with an Adafruit Motor Bonnet. The controller is any Websockets-enabled device (likely the web browser on your laptop/smartphone). We've provided a complete instruction set for the ambitious and an image file for those who want a more turnkey solution.
