This project is entitled "Goal!" The purpose of this project was to build and program a robot to push a ping pong ball across a game board and then "kick" (hit with a liftarm) the ball into a goal.
A liftarm was connect to a servo to get the desired "kicking motion". Liftarms were added to the front of the robot to keep the ping pong ball in place while the robot pushed it. When the building of the robot was complete, programming began.
After several weeks of building and programming the robot, it was complete. It successfully pushed and kicked the ball into the goal.
