Abstract: This project works on a gripper and flipper mechanism for a Beetle robot. A robotic game has been proposed for two Beetle robots to play a ball game. The game works on a simple rule: which ever Beetle robot that can capture the ball on the court and bring it to the "home" location will win. As such the gripper mechanism is devised for the purpose of capturing the ball. The Beetle robot holding the ball will bring the ball to the "home" location. Both the Beetle robots are equipped with a flipper mechanism that can trigger each other's weak spot and result its opponent to freeze and open up the gripper (thus releasing the ball if it is holding to one). This gives the other Beetle robot an opportunity to recapture the ball.
