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.
6 Representing members of our International Autonomous Robot Racing team made their way up to Waterloo, Canada today to compete with our inaugural entry in this year’s IARRC. To help get us in the racing spirit, our long drive from Atlanta to Waterloo was punctuated by a pit stop at the Bowling Green Corvette manufacturing facility and museum. The team will spend Friday making last-minute tweaks and adjustments to the platform and software while undergoing safety inspection. Saturday marks our racing debut, where the team will participate in the drag race and circuit race competitions. For more information, check out the competition website, and stay tuned on our social media outlets for updates!
Our RoboCup team has safely landed on João Pessoa Brazil after their 10 hour travel down from Miami. They are 1 of 2 teams from the USA competing in the SSL or Small Sized League. We wish them the best of luck as they represent both Georgia Tech and the United States!
Our Intelligent Ground Vehicle Team recently returned from competition in Rochester, MI, where we enjoyed a weekend packed with amazing robots and beautiful weather. Our members learned quite a bit from demonstrating our robot’s capabilities and seeing how other teams approached the challenge. We even got to see some incredible machines from the likes of iRobot® and Clearpath RoboticsTM! Now that we’re back in Atlanta, our IGVC team is already working on improvements for next year’s competition.
But if one robotics competition isn’t enough to fill your summer, we couldn’t agree more! IGVC is just the first of three of our teams that will compete this summer. Keep an eye out after the World Cup for RoboCup, taking place in Brazil this July. Meanwhile, our IARRC team will be on the road to Canada for their maiden competition. July will be a busy month for the RoboJackets!
