(August 9, 2016) Recently, four members of the Cybersonics Technology Team of Palisades High School presented their newest robot at Amplifier Research’s (AR) business meeting.
The team’s award winning robot recently won the Creativity Award sponsored by Xerox during a competition held at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia, PA. Cybersonics recognized that this year’s game was played in a full hemisphere and derived a unique solution. “Their automated aiming system utilized an Xbox Kinect to accurately find the target, and they used a steel spring activated by a custom built clutch to shoot the game ball,” reported AR.
CEO, Donald Shepherd, has been “fostering intelligent young individuals through supporting Cybersonics financially as well as giving some of the young people an opportunity to apply their skills on the job at AR in Souderton, PA. Several members of the Cybersonics team have held intern positions and some have gone on to work full time for AR,” according to the company.
