The RoboJackets is a group of Georgia Tech students, faculty, and alumni that aims to enhance the understanding of the field of robotics and its applications in depth of knowledge as well as to increase of the number of students exposed to it. We plan to carry out our mission through projects that correspond to the organization’s tenets of promotion, education and advancement.
We strive to be a multifaceted organization that allows students to experience various aspects of robotics. Both depth and breadth are encouraged as this allows the students to work more collaboratively in a group environment as well as have the abilities to pursue projects on their own. Hence our mission is effectively three-fold.
Through presentation of the existing uses of robotics in both industry and the home, the areas of current research and the possibilities for further application we hope to show the practicality and versatility of the robotics applications as well as the viability of the pursuit of education and careers in its development.
Through training workshops, competitive robotics, and student designed experimentation, the RoboJackets encourage the application and integration of concepts learned in their regular coursework as well as the understanding of how other disciplines contribute to the success of a project.
Through development projects and student experimentation, the RoboJackets hope to expand both our organizational knowledge base, as well as that of the students involved and the robotics community.
