This is our FUTURE Foundation Challenge robot. It is a stair climbing robot that utilizes autonomous and semi-autonomous control, and it also has a storage system in the back (demonstrated using water bottles).

Good description of the learning and engineering process. Not enough space in the storage area to make it really useful. Not clear that it can go up steeper stairs common inside a house; 2 brick stairs are not very tall.
