Autonomous Robotic Shovel Machine

Web-based Controller for Robotic Shovel: A Senior Design Project

A group of students in an ECE Senior Design course designed an Autonomous Robotic Shovel Machine that will be entrenched at the new ECE building site. On November 16 and 17 the robot did some digging on the site of the new ECE building as a robotic groundbreaking event. Video of the event will be posted shortly.

This event was used as a means to honor the many donors to the ECE Building Campaign. A lighted LED board displayed the name of a donor with each scoop of the shovel.

View videos of the various testing stages during building of the Autonomous Robot.
