Lab 9: Robot Tournament Part 3


  1. Have one member from your group sign up for your group’s 15-minute time slot for next week’s lab here. The sign-up is due midnight the day before your lab.
    • You will be asked to rank the time slots from most preferred to least preferred. We will prioritize your preference in the order they were submitted. That means the earlier you sign up the more likely you will get your preferred time!
    • If you do not submit your time slot preference on time, you will simply be assigned a time
    • Your group time will be announced in the morning of the day of your lab.
  2. Submit the following for your prelab:
    • Provide a description of your strategy. How is it more effective than your previous attempts?
      • This will be similar to what you are talking about in your video
      • Please include this summary at the beginning of your robot script as a comment (just the description, )
    • Include a picture of your robot!



  • Everyone in your group is required to show up at your assigned time and only that time
  • For the lab, your group will give your TA an informal presentation about your overall project, including:
    • A walkthrough of your strategy and implementation
    • Your robot’s visual design and how it was achieved
    • Any questions for your TA
  • For further questions outside your sign-up time, please go to our office hours. We will be hosting additional office hours in the next few weeks leading up to the project (times TBA).
