Abstract

Penn State Abington has developed an autonomous mobile robotics competition to support freshman design, K-12 outreach, undergraduate research opportunities, and curriculum integration. The contest, Robo-TrailBlazers, encourages participants to explore a variety of robot navigation solutions including line-following, wall-following, and cooperating robots. Participants in recent contests have ranged from second grade to college seniors. The contest supports a wide range of educational objectives and promotes interest in engineering and science.
