This was my third and last robotic contest in the University of Iceland.

Our team received a full house of points for both rounds on the track and was the only team to do that in both rounds.

The rules state that the team that receives most points in the shortest time wins and therefore we did not get the gold medal but we received an award for the most original design.

The track. The vehicle had to drive from the lower red patch to the end of that platform, picking up two tennis balls and pulling a lever to lower a bridge. It had to drive up that bridge (very steep),  pick up an extra tennis ball and back up all the way to the top red patch where the balls would be delivered.
