Cindy and Zoom-Zoom

The 2014 ASEE Robotics Competition was held in Indianapolis, IN. The 2014 competition required teams to design a robot that could quickly circle a racetrack and avoid obstacles.

Cedarville created two seperate entries for this competition. Cindy was designed to intelligently navigate the course, while Zoom-Zoom's premise was to rapidly drive around the course slamming into walls and allowing a cleverly designed circular bumper to redirect the robot.

Both robots were 3D printed and fitted with custom electronics, and both robots incorporated sensors that would steer the robot if an obstacle was placed in the way.

Cedarville's Zoom-Zoom entry finished first place, and their Cindy entry finished fifth in this competition.
