RoboNation’s biannual RobotX competition resembles the collision of NASCAR, the Mars rover, and boats. Teams from all over the world compete with 16-foot WAM-V pontoon boats, which must navigate through obstacles, listen with a sonar to pingers, and utilize an aerial vehicle to assist in various tasks. The next competition will take place in Australia in 2022.
Between physical competition years, a virtual competition takes place in simulation. Our team performed very well in 2019, and the Virtual RobotX competition is back for 2021!
