Golf Ball Challenge Lego Mindstorms

   For this challenge in PLTW, a mindstorm robot had to pick up a ball, drive it under a ramp, and put it into a box. The ramp is slanted with the lowest part closer to the box. It is to our advantage to make the robot as short as possible so that it does not have to drive for a long time alongside the ramp. We were allowed to use 3 motors. We used 2 for the wheels and one for the claw(to pick up the ball). Our robot is easily able to fit under the middle of the ramp.

Below is the greatest run EVER!

Below is one of our failed runs...(It is hard to see, the ball did not roll into the box)
