IGVC, the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, is held in the early summer each year. Our AutoNav team creates autonomous robots that can navigate a course with lanes and obstacles to compete at IGVC. The robots built for this competition must be able to use many advanced robotics techniques like localization, planning, and computer vision to guide the robot through the course.
The Student Tele-Operated Robotics Mission (STORM) is a interscholastic robotics competition for university students. Students will build a teleoperated robot that is capable of navigation, investigation, and interaction. The robot's operator will be in a physically separate location from the robot and may only communicate with the robot over a provided WiFi link.
Similarly apart of IGVC, our Self Drive team creates autonomous vehicles that must demonstrate lane, obstacle, and pedestrian detection and avoidance. Furthermore, they must also be able to perform roadway and parking driving maneuvers, road network navigation, and understand road signs.
RoboBoat is an annual competition held by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI). RoboBoat features autonomous boats that must navigate a defined course while completing one or more tasks.
MRDC is an annual competition held by the University of Illinois. MRDC featured teleoperated robots that were optimized to score maximimum points among several different point-scoring methods.
Mercury was an annual competition held by Oklahoma State University. The Mercury competition features teleoperated robots that must navigiate a defined course while completing one or more tasks.
NRC was our team for the annual National Robotics Challenge. We competed in the Autonomous Vehicle Challenge (AVC) competition where we had to build a robot that could autonomously navigate a small course as fast as possible.
IEEE was our team for the annual IEEE Robotics Challenge. The competition usually featured autonomous robots that needs to complete several specific tasks on a map.
Sumobot was our team for the annual Sumobot competition at RoboGames. In Sumobot, team robots face off against each other with the objective of pushing the other robot outside a ring.
Robomagellan was our team for the annual Robomagellan competition at RoboGames. The competition required an autonomous robot that could navigate using GPS to hit cones on a path as fast as possible.
ASEE was our team for the ASEE annual robotics competition limited to only first and second year students. The competition featured autonomous robots that must complete one or more tasks.
KIPR was our team for the KIPR annual robotics challenge featuring multiple categories. We competed in the Aerial and Open categories, winning multiple times.
