Over the past four years, the Zebracorns have created a modular design philosophy and development model based on the Robot Operating System (ROS). Last year, we focused on polishing the core elements and laying the foundation of our robot code base. During the 2020 season, we were able to leverage the advantages of this system as we continue to build upon our previous work. Many of this year’s improvements centered around reliability of the robot itself, as well as driver-robot interaction. Other improvements are new features that bring us closer to the goal of a fully autonomous robot.
