However, this cannot be done by putting random pieces together in the hope that the setup does a sufficient job. Many hours need to be spent designing all the different setups that can be thought of and then must be tested. The final product must be one that is agile and capable of moving around the playing field at a fast pace. It must be able to launch the puck a distance of at least 65cm time and again and be able to get to and pickup all the pucks that are inside the playing field. Once all the designs have been thoroughly tested, they must be compared against one another so that the best design may be selected for the task. These results are heavily discussed throughout the report so that the reader may gain an insight into why the final robot was designed how it was. Once the robot has been built with the best elements, it must be programmed. The programming must also take time as it must be tested over and over again so that the robot is able to react accordingly when it is faced with certain situations. However, the more simple a program is the easier it is to understand and decode. If there has been no time dedicated to the programming, it will become obvious and the robot will be unable to do any required tasks....
