Kickoff Canceled due to Winter Weather

January 6, 2017 9:31 am | By Kristaps Berzinch

To ensure the safety of students and event staff, GeorgiaFIRST has made the difficult decision to cancel the regional kickoff event that was to be held at Georgia Tech tomorrow.

Teams can watch the game reveal online here. Kit of parts may be picked up from the Atlanta Destination Einstein location on Sunday between 1-4pm. We are looking into rescheduling the workshops to a later date.

The RoboJackets’ Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition team and their robot Mistii recently attended competition at Oakland University in Rochester Michigan from June 5-8. Mistii, a 3 wheeled, 300lb autonomous vehicle, contended with adverse weather conditions and muddy terrain over the four days of the event. The team was ultimately unable to qualify on the track but came closer to their goal than in the previous two years. The object of the competition is to create and program a robot that can navigate an outdoor obstacle course comprised of barrels, painted lines, and gps waypoints without any human assistance.
