Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Internet Controlled Robot

Team ORS has implemented an internet-based robotic system. The controls between all the components of the project are designed for ease of use and allow for future expansion. Each component was researched and designed to meet safety and usability specifications provided by several organizations. The online system can be used by anyone, regardless of experience level.
There are three modes of operation: Users can play games using prepared programs; a freeform mode with interactive controls; and a programming mode which allows users to write custom code.
