The robotics team from Kansas State University consists of three undergraduates, one graduate student, and a faculty advisor from the Department of Computing and Information Sciences. The group intends to compete in the "Find the Remote" event at this year’s AAAI 97 Mobile Robotics Competition in Providence, Rhode Island. Kansas State University has participated in each of the last four competitions, placing two teams (second and third place) in last year’s "Office Delivery" event. This year’s team has two principal goals: to win the "Find the Remote" event and to provide a solid foundation on which to build future entries.
