SDSM& T STUDENTS TO COMPETE WITH THEIR ROBOT IN IEEE REGIONAL ROBOTICS CONTEST
The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) students will compete with their student- designed robot in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ( IEEE) Region 5 Robotics Contest this weekend in Fort Worth, Texas. The contest requires student- designed robots to navigate through a maze to find the room in which a candle is burning, blow out the candle and then return to home base without touching any of the maze walls.
SDSM& T’s team members with their majors and hometowns are Karl Hiramoto, computer engineering, Arlington; Angie Monheim, electrical engineering, Rapid City; and Marijane White, Computer engineering, Fort Wayne, IN. Rich Ivey, a computer science major from Sioux Falls, provided assistance with programming the robot.
In addition to SDSM& T, the eleven universities scheduled to compete in this new IEEE contest include the Louisiana State University, Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville, Texas Technological University ( 2 robots), University of Missouri - Rolla, University of New Orleans, University of Southern Colorado, University of Southwestern Louisiana - Parks, University of Southwestern Louisiana, University of Texas - Austin and Wichita State University.
