The Department of Electronic Engineering hosted a Robo-Golf Challenge during Open Day 2013. The competition was held at the Melbourne, Bendigo and Albury-Wodonga campuses.
Students had to navigate through three different obstacle-ridden golf terrains using a Bluetooth controlled robot armed with a kicker. The golf courses and robotics system is the work of current La Trobe University students.
The winner at each Open Day was presented with a Samsung Galaxy Tablet/Google Nexus Tablet.
