Entry ID #: 3904
Created: Wed, Jan 11, 2017 7:53 PM

This robot is able to follow people using ultrasonic sensors and go back to its original position with the push of a limit switch. The robot was created to assist people with throwing away trash, so a person doesn't have to go all the way to a trashcan if they want to dispose trash. Instead, the robot will go there and throw it away.


There is nothing here.
