Calling all future RoboJackets!

August 26, 2019 1:52 pm | By Joe Spall

RoboJackets is hosting our two General Interest meetings (September 3rd and 4th) to give you all the information you need to know to join RoboJackets. Both meetings will start at 6pm in Howey L3 and are identical, so you should only attend a single session.

There will be FREE PIZZA and robots galore. During the meeting, each of our 5 teams will present their projects and show you how to get involved.

After the presentation, current members from each team will be around to answer questions.

Please RSVP with one of the buttons below so we can get an accurate headcount! If you already RSVPed elsewhere, you do not need to do so again.

IARRC Result – First Place!

August 12, 2019 1:56 pm | By Varun Madabushi

We are proud to announce that our RoboRacing team has achieved a first place victory at the 2019 International Autonomous Robot Racing Competition in Waterloo!

This year our robot, Sedanii, finished second place in the circuit race and urban challenge events, and first place in the drag race and obstacle course events. In addition, we received first place in the design competition, where our team members prepared and delivered a paper and oral presentation to a panel of judges.

We are extremely proud of work our members put in to design, build, and test our hardware and software!

SparkFun AVC Recap

September 26, 2018 11:07 pm | By Kyla Qi

SparkFun AVC was in Boulder County from September 7th to 9th. Our RoboRacing and BattleBots three pounder team competed in the AVC Classic Collegiate division and Combat Bot Beetleweight division respectively.

Sedani performed the best out of the collegiate teams, netting us a first-place medal in the Speed Demon event.
Three pounder Chewii fought hard and won a match before falling to electrical issues.
RoboRacing’s hard work over the past year led to improvements on Bigolii, but a day full of unforeseen issues prevented Bigolii from finishing the Autonomous Car Wars event.
We’re excited to improve our designs and come back next year!

You can learn more about Sparkfun AVC and view this year’s results at avc.sparkfun.com.
