Lawrence County Inc.

BEST 2011 “BUGS” competition.

Go green

  • The purpose of our robot is to capture genetically altered bugs without harm.

  • Generally, pesticides would be used to stop the bugs from multiplying.

  • Our robot will capture the bugs without harm, cut back on chemicals released into our environment, and reduce risk to humans that would otherwise have to capture these bugs themselves.

Why choose ours
Why Choose Ours?

  • Before the creation of our robot, humans would have to find and capture these bugs.

  • Our robot can access places humans could never go.

  • Pesticides are also a potential problem for humans because the effects they can have. Such effects are birth defects in unborn children, nerve damage and certain cancers.

Offensive and defensive strategies
Offensive and Defensive Strategies

  • Offensive and defensive strategies are pretty much the same.

  • Our drivers will direct the robot to move the cross ties, not allowing other robots into our course.

Publicity efforts
Publicity Efforts

  • Local newspaper, “The Moulton Advertiser” is helping with publicity efforts by writing an article on our company.

  • Lawrence County Inc. has two sponsorships, local restaurant, “Steak- N – Biscuit” and Wal-Mart of Moulton.

Evaluation of design alternatives
Evaluation of design alternatives

  • Our team ran into a few problems during the design process.

  • The arm was originally to be 36 inches long, this caused problems due to the 24 inch game space. This is why our team decided on a bi-fold arm.

  • The claw also had to be evaluated to make sure it was big enough to pick up the bugs and carry them.
