Robotics Team

by Will Hilton last modified 2012-10-23 22:44

The UC Robotics Team is one of UC's academic intercollegiate teams, which means that we are a student organization that competes in robotics competitions as one of our main functions. Our team is open to undergraduate and graduate students of all year, levels, and majors (engineering or non), and interested students are welcome to attend one of our meetings to check us out (they are held Wednesdays at 7:15pm and Fridays at 1pm in Baldwin 551). Our main competitions have historically been the IGVC (Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition - see more info "here":igvc) and the ION (Institute of Navigation) Lawnmower Challenge (see more info "here":ion), so we deal a lot with computer vision and autonomous ground vehicles. This year, we have also started on some new projects and research areas, including an autonomous aerial vehicle and a musical robot. We are trying to grow the team's scope, so new ideas and interests are welcome to the team as well. If any of these projects or research areas sound interesting to you, you should come join us for one of our weekly meetings! There are many advantages to being on the team, such as increased opportunities for obtaining co-op and full time jobs, experiences to put on your resume, and a fun extracurricular involvement experience. The best person to contact for information is our President, Curtis Schumacher. See the "Tutorials":tutorials to learn some basic robotics skills! (They are in the process of becoming more organized, so contact one of the current officers if you need help finding anything.)
