Meet Our Robotics Group!
Mete Atamel, Programming
Mete is a senior at Gettysburg College and is a dual major in Computer Science and Mathmatics.
He worked on programming Trusty with Dan and Jon. He also helped with algorithm design
and experimented with arithmetic aproaches to problem solving.
Dan Blankenberg, Software Design
A junior at Gettysburg College, Dan is a Computer Science and Biochemistry/Molecular Biology
double major. He worked with Jon and Mete on programming Trusty.
Jon Branham, Software Design
Jon Branham is also a junior and is majoring in Computer Science. He worked with Dan and Mete on programming
Trusty and was constantly proposing new solutions and test cases. Jon also did the javadocs for the code.
Emily Haas, Webpage Design
Emily is a junior at Gettysburg College and is a Computer Science / Chemistry double major.
She designed and created the 2002 Robotics Websight and was in charge of documentation.
She also helped design test courses.
Machel Higgins, Engineering
Machel, a junior Gettysburg College Computer Science and Physics dual major, was in charge of building
the many different Trusty versions created by the group. He also helped with creating a threading
algorithm with the programming team. Machel also took pictures of the robot.
Chris La Pilla, Algorithm
Chris is a senior Computer Science and Music double major. He worked on building the robots
and helped with troubleshooting. Chris also designed the algorithms for parts three and four.
James "Brook" Miller, Hardware/Concept Design
Brook, a sophomore Computer Science, Physics, and Mathmatics triple major, worked on building
the different Trusty versions as well. He also helped Jon come up with many great solutions to problems
the team was faced with while building the Line Follower Robot.
Brook has requested that his official title be "God."
Ben Reynolds, Design
Ben is a junior Computer Science major at Gettysburg. He worked on building and troubleshooting
Michael Schompert, Hardware Design
Mike is a junior Computer Science and Management dual major. He worked on building the robot, as well
as designing test scenarios. Mike also worked on discovering helpful modifications
to the Trusty design. Finally, Mike designed the Step-By-Step instructions page for building "The Beast"
