Robot design competition for a class titled Engineering Graphics and Design in UCSD's Mechanical Engineering department. Teams of 3-4 students were tasked creating a robot that could remove plastic monkeys out of a cage and onto a tree. Teams were responsible for CAD design, rapid prototyping and engineering analysis (i.e. viability simulations). Our team went for a high floor/low ceiling robot in terms of points scored, and the end result was our robot had the highest average score in our section across 5 matches.
