Egg Hunt Robot Written Report

Assigned: Tuesday, November 7, 2006.

  • Tuesday, November 14, 2006 first draft
  • Tuesday, November 21, 2006 final document

This is a formal written report that documents your Egg Hunt robot design.


This assignment is an opportunity to produce a permanent written and pictorial record of your Egg Hunt robot design.

We will do the writing process in two steps. A week from today, a draft will be due. The draft should include section headings for all major components of the report, as well as photographs of the robot and images of the LabVIEW code you will be explicating.

I will comment on the drafts and have those comments back to you by Friday, November 17. The final reports will be due on the following Tuesday (November 21). No homework during Thanksgiving recess!


The report should:

  • describe your robot in detail
  • include separate sections on each sub-system
  • have a section on the overall strategy
  • present images of LabVIEW code that implements this strategy, and include textual discussion of how this code accomplishes your intent
  • have photos and diagrams illustrating key pieces
  • include a “post-mortem” of your robot's contest performance
  • be well-written with good English and grammar
  • deliver as a Word file w/pics * – here is the style sheet you should use.
  • include a large photo on cover page – this will be reproduced in color in report compendium.
  • reports are to be co-produced by team members
  • reports should include an appendix section that describes the collaboration, including details on who did what
  • I will attempt to get your graphics from the Art students so you can include them in the report. Make sure to get their names and credit them in the writing.

See the Chanler/Pantazopoulos report on Angus as an example of an excellent writeup.

(*) Note: If you are not a fan of MS Word I would be happy to accept a PDF produced however you like.
