For the second consecutive season, igus? is a High Speed Bearings sponsor for Botball, an educational robotics program funded by the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics. The Botball Program aims to integrate science, technology of Needle Roller Bearings, engineering, and math with robotics to keep students on the cutting edge of technology. For the 2010 competition, igus donated Energy Chain? cable carriers and DryLin? linear guide systems to each team.
Starting this month, students have seven weeks to design by Stainless Steel Bearings, build and program a mobile, autonomous robot while documenting their engineering process online. Participants later compete against each other on a playing field in a regional tournaments. The robots must be student-built and programmed to maneuver on the game board without using a remote control.
