System Design Project Home Page

28 March 2016

The System Design Project is a Semester 2 module and is a group project involving construction of an item of significant complexity under conditions designed to give insights into industrial teamwork.

It is a double-weight module (course) with design, construction and assessment through the semester, ending with a tournament.

The Project

This year's task is to use Lego and an Arduino to play two-a-side football, based loosely on the Robocup competition small size league.

Details for the course will be provided by the end of semester 1

The Facilities

The course is based on the 3rd floor of Forrest Hill. There are two pitches, in 3.D03 and 3.D04. 3.D02 is the main working lab, with dedicated DICE machines and group lockers for storing robots etc., and 3.D02A (small room at the back of 3.D02) is the parts store room.
