Upgrading and improving the “Wandering Campus Ambassador” took the collective expertise of students from mechanical, electrical and computer engineering as well as peers from industrial design. The robotic system and its intricate mechanical elements were on display at the multidisciplinary senior design presentations in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering on Feb. 18. The device is designed to move around campus to not only generate interest in robotics but to raise awareness about self-sustaining energy platforms. The project, sponsored by the RIT Provost’s Learning Innovations Grant, focused on upgraded solar collectors and improved mechanical components.
