Firstly, we looked at how we were going to approach and edit the base-board, which was given to us to work with. We wanted to create an arena filled with a material that would be moved by a machine that we built ourselves. We got our inspiration from an automatic vacuumcleaner. We then decided not to incorporate the vacuum function but to use the machine to push forward polisterin balls that are inside the arena.

Furthermore, we linked Arduino to our machine. The machine consists of a motherboard, two wheels, the arduino basic kit and an ultrasonic sensor. Through coding we were able to move the device and this, in turn, moves the polisterin balls around the arena.
