Robots Playing Hockey at Penn

For students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Design of Mechatronic Systems class, “the finals” are more than an exam; they are a tournament in which the winners hoist a trophy high above their heads in victory.

Throughout the school year, members of the class, led by Jonathan Fiene, director of laboratory programs, design pint-sized robotic hockey teams that faceoff in an annual competition known as The Robockey Cup. Each team produces three robots that skate on wheels, shoot with pistons, and see the puck, the goals, and each other using a variety of sensors.
