Come see what our second-year students have been building at the MECH 223 competition on Wednesday, January 27th. This year’s project is concerned with regenerative braking: teams need to collect energy from their vehicle rolling down a ramp, and use that energy to perform various actions. The vehicles are all autonomous, and need to stop accurately, start moving again after a stop, slow down in sections, speed up in sections, carry cargo, and travel as far as possible (depending on the round).
The competition will take place in the Fred Kaiser building (2332 Main Mall), room 1180, from 11:00 am-2:00 pm. Stop by to cheer on your favorite team! All are welcome!
We’ll be posting photos of the competition after the event, so be sure to check back. Here’s one from last year’s competition, which involved racing water-powered cars!
