Use the Gears-IDS Invention and Design System to build an Autonomous Game Playing Robot.
Because the GEARS-IDS Kit is built using precision machined parts, heavy duty (0.090" thick) stamped aluminum structural components and all metal industrial grade gear head motors, you can customize your robot designs using almost any other engineering components you can find! The GEARS-IDS Kit makes it possible for you to design and build competitive robot athletes, using industrial engineering components, in the comfort and convenience of your own classroom.

GEARS-IDS Project Description Document of the Autonomous Robot
This document illustrates and describes the construction of an autonomous robot that follows a line on a game table or floor, establishes a relative position using home made line sensors and fires a pneumatic catapult capable of launching a ping pong ball projectile into a target goal set at a distance of 6 to 16 feet away.
