Summer 2018 Update

August 12, 2018 11:24 am | By Kyla Qi

It’s been a busy summer for RoboJackets! Here’s a quick recap of what our teams have been up to since the end of the Spring semester:

BattleBots competed at RoboGames in Pleasanton, CA in early May. 120 lb vertical spinner Mandiii went 4-2 and took second place after only losing matches to the first place robot. Mandiii has been a focus of iterative design starting in 2012, and we were excited to celebrate years of hard work with our highest placement in competition to date.

IGVC performed at its highest level in 6 years, earning second place out of approximately 40 teams in the design competition and being one of the 11 teams to qualify out of the 36 present. This performance was thanks to their exceptional team effort to get a functional robot within a single year.

RoboRacing competed at the annual International Autonomous Robot Racing Competition this June, entering their new and improved small autonomous car, Sedani. Sedani successfully navigated the drag race autonomously, but faced some difficulties on the circuit race. Their mechanical and electrical systems are stable and the team is poised to be successful at the upcoming Sparkfun AVC in Colorado.

RoboCup significantly improved this year, successfully passing at this year’s competition in Montreal. They ended with two wins, two ties, and two losses, moving from last to 5th in their division. After competition, the team developed a working chipper prototype.

All of our competitive teams learned a lot from their competitions, and we are very excited to begin improving our robots for next year!

The IARRC team of the Georgia Tech RoboJackets had a blast competing in the International Autonomous Robot Racing Challenge in Waterloo, Canada. The competition was comprised of 3 events: an autonomous drag race, and autonomous circuit race, and a design presentation. The RoboJackets came in 4th overall in the competition, and walked away with a judges award for “Best Mechanical Design.”

After spending a few wonderful days in Canada, the RoboJackets IARRC team took first place in both the drag and circuit races for an overall first place finish.

We would like to thank the University of Waterloo for their efforts in organizing and hosting this great event.
