The Bulldogs - Robot in 3 Days on FUN - Videos - Reveal

The Bulldogs from Kettering University will be running another Ri3D with content creation and stream coming from First Updates Now.

Videos on YouTube (and will also be posted here):

The goal of the Bulldogs is to help educate and demonstrate robot concepts, design, programming and assembly for teams to take inspiration from for their season. Expect lots of breakdowns and explanations on how aspects of the robot and what leads up to the robot are formulated.
