This article describes the development of an autonomous robotic system for playing mini-golf. The system was designed and built to serve as a demonstration of robotic application for engineering students. The system was built using a Yasakawa robot fitted with two arms. The software was developed to control the machine using the C++ language. Standard C++ libraries were used in addition to communication libraries provided by the Yasakawa Corporation. The current configuration works with Microsoft Windows NT and an Ethernet environment. This article describes the hardware and software design aspects of this machine.
