This team takes care of designing, machining and constructing the robot. They work on the drive-train, robotic arm and the complex chassis, which must navigate difficult terrain and house our many sensors.
The Electrical team works chiefly on wiring, power and control. They create the power supply system, work on our long range communication system and set up firmware/motor control.
This is our biggest sub-team with the most amount of work. The software team writes code to take in information about the robot’s surroundings and makes decisions about where the to go next. If you are interested in working in pathfinding, mapping, computer vision, networking or systems integration, software has projects for you!
The admin sub-team keeps our team running smoothly; they organize meetings, events and travel plans for competition. They are also responsible for all of our funding and sponsor relations.
A: Yes! But you will need to attend an interview and complete the software challenge if you want to join the software team. (You can complete the software challenge in your own time and get help from our current members during our info session)
A: Check this page, we will update it with the status of which teams are still accepting members.
A: Pick one sub-team that sounds interesting to you and go with it. We are somewhat flexible with our members transferring between teams, so if you don’t like it you can transfer. Also try talking to some of our current members about the different sub-teams you are interested in.
A: Yes, we accept students from all faculties, all you need is a keen interest in robotics and a keen desire to learn!
