Autonomous Robotic Systems

Goals

To work as part of a multidispinary team creating autonomous robots that will compete in multiple challenges and contests around the Nation.

Issues Involved or Addressed

To create innovative solutions to challenges that arise when designing, building, and testing autonomous robotic systems. The techincal challenges faced are mostly in the areas of systems enginerring, mechincal systems, real-time software, embedded computer systems, vision processing, and electrical systems. Plus, by working as part of a multidisciplinary team, the students will gain knowledge in non-technical skills such as communciation, teamwork, and leadership.
