'Dawg-scalator' rules!

SIUC team captures robotics championship: "The “Dawg-scalator” . . . won the head-to-head competition in a field of 11 teams from schools including Cal Poly, Iowa State and the University of Northern Iowa.

This year’s competition involved picking up at least three racquetballs and putting them in a box faster than the other robot in a head-to-head contest. The robot designed by the SIUC team used a set of rollers on the front that directed the balls into the space between two opposing conveyor belts, which subsequently grabbed the balls and moved them along and upward before depositing them in the box."
