The Real Megatron

Created on 29 Oct 2018

Robotic wide receiver that runs preprogrammed football routes to catch a thrown pass

The robot will run a choice of pre-programmed routes so a quarterback can throw a football into a net that is attached to it. When the ball is thrown, the bot will use computer vision to adjust it's route in order to catch the ball.
