Day 11: Differentiating with Robots

This year we’re replacing the old buggy collision CVPM practicum with one that uses robots. Students have to program a robot, with a fixed starting location so that it hits another robot right when it reaches the origin. We are also able to differentiate this assignment a bit, offering the students a choice of target robots, ranging from an easy one that moves at constant velocity, up to a hard one that moves erratically forward and backward.
