After a donation last semester from Raven Industries out of Sioux Falls, students are making some final adjustments to their project, in hopes it will be in working order to navigate a 1,000 foot obstacle course set up at the IGVC competition.
Robotics team president Matthew Richard says, "That is our number one goal to make it to competition this year. We haven't for the past two years, that's been due to mostly mechanical and electrical issues. Now we've kind of figured all that stuff out, that stuff is pretty sound now and mostly it's the software and getting the robot, actually telling the robot how to navigate through this course."
About 20 students have been working on the project this year with an additional 10 to 15 former students who worked on it over the past two years.
