Engineering Robotic Football: ONU Polar Bears vs. Notre Dame Irish
Students from ONU's College of Engineering have created a team of robotic football players to compete in the fifth annual University of Notre Dame robotic football competition on Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m. in ONU's King-Horn Fieldhouse. The event is free and open to the public.
As part of their senior capstone project, a team of ONU students manufactured robotic players (quarterbacks, centers, linemen, running backs, wide receivers and a kicker) with funding from the University of Notre Dame. These players will compete in the spring game, which tests the skills of each robot specific to their position, and will compete against robots built by Notre Dame students in a game of eight-on-eight, modified-rules football.
More details available soon.
