The Botball Educational Robotics Program is coordinated each year by the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics (KISS stands for the engineering acronym: Keep It Simple Stupid). Their vision is to use robotics to engage students in science, technology, engineering and math. Unlike other robotics competitions, Botball is completely autonomous; they are not remote-controlled. The robots contain several sensors as well as two cameras for their computer vision systems. Robots must use their sensors to recognize challenges and complete the competition objectives. The programmed robots must complete a series of tasks in two minutes. Competitors must also complete online documentation of their progress and their goals to score points.
