What we’re responsible for:

  • Programming the ROV to move and function
  • Developing a strategy for the MATE ROV competition
  • Implementing creative solutions to complex problems

What we use:

  • Our main language is C++/Arduino
  • Git is where our code is housed
  • We use OpenCV for many projects

For anyone interested in the field of robotics programming, even with no experience, this is the division you need!

New Robot Drives Anywhere Without Turning

Though we obviously have a few big robots we’ve built for competitions, we at Missouri S&T’s Robotics Competition Team now have a much smaller addition. Our new pint-sized robot, which we’ve given the name Micro Prime (or μPrime), uses an advanced drive mechanism called swerve drive. Basically, this means that Read more…
