This project proposed the development of a piece of software capable of controlling a robot and performing a series of tasks. Our robot, Gary, was supposed to drive around a predetermined course, which contained five checkpoints, five golf balls and five obstacles. Gary's objectives were to go through all the checkpoints, while collecting as many golf balls as possible and avoiding the obstacles. After that, the balls needed to be deposited at the appropriate locations. And all this should be done as fast as possible.

There were five, blue and orange golf balls. Gary had to collect them, telling us the precise location where they were found. The more precise, the more points Gary would give us. Gary had to avoid the obstacles, otherwise he'd be disqualified.
