Autonomous Tennis Ball Robot

robot assembly

Our project team consists of  3 fourth year Mechatronics Engineering as well as 8 additional members of the UW Robotics team.

Or goal is to design, build, and test an autonomous Tennis Ball Collecting Mobile RobotThe robot will actively seek clusters of tennis balls on a court, pick up these balls and store them on-board, and refill an automatic tennis ball thrower.

The goal of the project is to reduce the amount of time a tennis player will need to spend collecting tennis balls when using an automatic tennis ball launcher.

Current progress pictures are available here. A detailed design document is also available here.
