The Odyssey was an autonomous robot designed back in 2007 by the OLogic internal team to be used in the RoboMagellan challenge.

The Challenge
Robo-Magellan is a robotics competition emphasizing autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance over varied, outdoor terrain. Robots have three opportunities to navigate from a starting point to an ending point and are scored on time required to complete the course with opportunities to lower the score based upon contacting intermediate points marked by road cones.

The Robot
The robot must not be constructed in such a way as to damage the environment or other robots. No robot may weigh more than 50 pounds nor may it use an internal or external combustion engine. The robot must fit inside a 4’x4’x4′ cube for the entire duration of its run. Robots must be autonomous. Remote control is not allowed with the exception of the remote control safety switch(es).
