IGVC Kicks-Off Summer Competitions

June 30, 2014 1:25 pm | By Matt Barulic

Our Intelligent Ground Vehicle Team recently returned from competition in Rochester, MI, where we enjoyed a weekend packed with amazing robots and beautiful weather. Our members learned quite a bit from demonstrating our robot’s capabilities and seeing how other teams approached the challenge. We even got to see some incredible machines from the likes of iRobot® and Clearpath RoboticsTM! Now that we’re back in Atlanta, our IGVC team is already working on improvements for next year’s competition.

But if one robotics competition isn’t enough to fill your summer, we couldn’t agree more! IGVC is just the first of three of our teams that will compete this summer. Keep an eye out after the World Cup for RoboCup, taking place in Brazil this July. Meanwhile, our IARRC team will be on the road to Canada for their maiden competition. July will be a busy month for the RoboJackets!
