IGVC Team Competes in Rochester, MI

June 13, 2015 11:42 am | By Orlin Velev

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.

GRITS 2014

October 7, 2014 2:20 am | By RoboJackets

The RoboJackets had their hands full at the sixth annual Georgia Robotics Invitational Tournament and Showcase (GRITS). On October 4, members from our Outreach group and the competition teams volunteered as staff to help put on Georgia’s off-season FIRST event.

Our members kept the competition field running, helped oversee safety in the competition pit areas, and worked with rookie groups of students to compete in last year’s FRC game, Aerial Assist. The event was a great opportunity for new students to whet their appetite for competition robotics as they gear up for the upcoming FRC season. We look forward to helping out with the coming year’s game as event coordinators, volunteers, and mentors.
