Projects Team this year had a blast! From concept drawing on chalkboard to live open house demonstrations, the team has put in a lot of work to create a robotic arm with almost all the degrees of freedom as a regular one. EOH was also success with presentations from Projects, VEX, and Robobrawl (livestream) at our booth. This is farewell from Rock, however the team looks forward to more exciting projects in the future.
This year, iRobotics had two exhibits at Engineering Open House in addition to the Jerry Sanders Design Competition. One exhibit featured our robots for the VEX Competition, which visitors could drive around! The other featured ComBots destroying old electronics in a polycarbonate cage built by our Projects Team! Both exhibits attracted tons of visitors over the course of the two days!! Take a look!! Here’s to a fantastic EOH next year!! Let’s keep the iRobotics flag flying high!
The newly formed Projects Team built a polycarbonate cage for the ComBots to destroy old electronics in at Engineering Open House. This cage was a huge success, as visitors from everywhere stopped by to watch the demosntrations! The team put in a lot of work to build this cage from pieces of wood, polycarbonate, and a few nuts and bolts! A very hearty job well done to everyone!
The next projects that we will be pursuing are building a quadcopter as well as a demonstration robot for our outreach events!! Let’s keep the ball rolling as we move into next year!
