The purpose of this project is to design a robot for the IEEE SoutheastCon 2024 hardware competition. In this competition, the robot must be able to pick up blocks and move them. The robot must also be able to pass over a 7-inch gap and press a button, performing these tasks quickly and without any outside control. One important strategy we used was optimization.
