There will be an introductory meeting for prospective members Thursday the 19th at 6PM in the Kim Engineering Building, Room 1110. Learn about what our team does and what you can do to help out. There will also be a demo of our robotic submarine, Tortuga. See how our robot completes tasks autonomously and maybe even drive it yourself!

Wow! After many setbacks, a shot at the wildcard slot in the finals, and two great runs at the course, we have come from behind and taken fourth place in the Robosub 2013 competition!

Donald Gregorich

Sorry about not updating in several days - we have been working very hard testing and fixing several problems on our robot, which hasn't left much time for blogging. Today, all of those late nights paid off; we scored high enough during our second chance run to earn the wildcard slot, netting us a chance to compete in the finals!

Yesterday was the first official day of Robosub, and our robot arrived!

After a long week of hard work Tortuga is on her way to San Diego. The entire team has put in a lot of hours and hopes to provide a solid entry this year. We would like to thank all the people who have helped get us to where we are and hope you will watch and support us next week. We will be updating as much as possible.
