Calling all present and future RoboJackets! We will be hosting our 2015 General Interest meeting Tuesday, September 8th at 6pm, in IC 103 (Building 55 on the campus map).
This is the meeting where we’ll tell interested students all about our different teams, the projects we’ll be working on this year, and when we’ll be meeting this semester.

See you all on the eighth!
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.”
The Georgia Tech RoboJackets arrived in Hefei, China on the 17th of July for the RoboCup competition. Competing throughout this week everyone is excited to see how well they do!

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.
