Fall 2008

BALL-E is a project create by Cathy Chen and Matt Meister in ECE 5760 in the fall of 2008. The project is an autonomous robot that locates and follows an orange lacrosse ball.

Our project's goal was to create an automomous robot that utilized a camera and tracked a orange ball in a mostly white/gray enivironemnt. Using this information, the robot's neurons would control four motors to steer the robot toward the ball. We would then manually move the ball and BALL-E would chase it.
