RoboRave Lego Bot
“Inferno” was a robot from Hewlett-Packard that was in the Big Kids line following event during the RoboRAVE International competition in the Albuquerque Convention Center on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Creator Jesse Dunaway said the robot would belch a flame from a Binaca breath freshener container when it turned corners as it followed a line on the floor. Copyright:ABQJournal Photo
“This was part of the Robo Rave event earlier this year. I designed a bot from the lego Mindstorm kits that went above and beyond the competition requirements to generate excitement for what is possible for this Robotics in Education event… beyond the standards our bot has a great costume and the ability to breath fire!” ~Jesse Dunaway
Main guidelines for the bot were that it had to be autonomous for line following and targeted ball release into a container within a specific timeframe.
