Robotic Air Hockey

Created on 16 Oct 2018

Classic Air Hockey Table with Robot as Opponent

We're building a modular robotic package that can attach to any air hockey table and play against another person. This package will hopefully be able to learn and better predict moves over time and better predict the best angles to return shots. [For all our code, see our github repository]( [For more info, please see our documentation](
