Pets have long been known to provide companionship to elderly and disabled persons.  For those that are challenged with limited mobility, interacting with pets is difficult.  We have highlighted a use of robotics to fulfill this need.  Our robot will shoot a ball, so that a dog can fetch the ball.  In the event that the dog does not fetch the ball, the robot can be remotely driven to collect the ball and return the ball to the user.  Our robotic solution will provide more quality play-time with a pet, resulting in a more fulfilling experience for the elderly or disabled individual.  This robot is constructed completely of VEX parts.
