Testing Begins: The ROV Comes to Life!

As the first semester of the Underwater Robotics’ build cycle comes to a close, the team eagerly wires up the electronics and places them into the enclosure. It has been a tumultuous semester – a relocation, a new design, and a new team. The team has been hard at work assembling a frame and thruster layout to maximize the points awarded in the design portion of the 2017 MATE ROV competition. Project Manager Vinnie Marco Read more…

Making the Transition: Underwater Robotics Fully Moved into SDELC

The Underwater Robotics Team is now completely moved into the Missouri S&T Student Design and Experimental Learning Center, SDELC for short. This change was long overdue, and with the recent team re-brand, it was an obvious choice to relocate. For years, the Robotics Design Team (now the Underwater Robotics Team) had used a personal space located in the Engineering Research Lab on campus. While it was beneficial for the team to have it’s own space, Read more…

PR Team Teaches Robotics

The PR division of the Underwater Robotics team has learned that Robotics isn’t just for the knowledgeable. Over the past few weeks, members have traveled to several summer programs and gave presentations about what our organization does, and real world applications, like self driving cars and underwater exploration! Traveling with our esteemed PR member, Trashbot, the Underwater Robotics team has brought great exposure to our team.   Both Boone Elementary in Ashland and the Academy Read more…

A New Vision – Robotics Gets an Upgrade

  For years the Robotics team have discussed using visual media to reach out to our supporters, in the forms of videos and live streams. Enabling experienced members to share their process and insight to the design process will engage sponsors, alumni, and prospective members alike. The biggest obstacle thus far has been obtaining a camera that can capture the delicate electrical and mechanical work with clarity. With this HD camera the team will make Read more…

Computing Division Brings Robot to Life with Neural Network

The computing division has started development on a new neural network, which will improve the robot’s autonomous performance. “The neural network is basically like a graph of nodes,” computing division lead Chris Eitutis explains. “You feed it some input, and those nodes do calculations similar to what you would imagine your brain to be like… then it will give some output, which should be what we want the robot to do.” The programmers will be Read more…

The Computing Cappuccino – Learning Arduino

The Robotics Design Team’s Computing Division is happy to welcome over a dozen new members this semester. With IGVC on the way, Computing Division leads Chris and Jonathan want to give these new members experience with the combination of computer software and hardware. By using Arduino UNO” the computing team has begun its 3-week workshop process by inputting and outputting various types of real world signals. Towards the end of the training the members of Read more…

New Year, New Challenge – IGVC 2017

With every new school year comes a new set of challenges, and for the Robotics Design Team, it’s preparing for the 2017 Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, or IGVC for short. The competition takes place At Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan on June 2 – June 5, 2017. The contestants must design an outdoor terrain vehicle of at least 3 feet long, and navigate though an obstacle course, 100% autonomously. This means no member of our Read more…

Robotics BBQs, Retrieves Frisbee From Lake

A week ago, the Robotics team held a barbecue in Schuman Park. For the people who showed up, there was food, board games, and gusts of wind strong enough to blow cards halfway across the pavilion and push a frisbee into the lake. The ensuing scramble to retrieve the frisbee took teamwork, engineering acumen, and a lot of duct tape. We eventually used a fishing rod duct taped to the end of a wooden beam with a hook made Read more…

Rolling Out at Minerama!

This past Friday was Minerama, the student involvement fair which is held at the start of every semester at Missouri S&T to show students all of the various organizations in the community that they can be a part of. Though many clubs, teams, and societies had booths, we’re pretty sure we’re the only one that let people drive a robot! When students came to our booth, they were able to use an XBOX controller to Read more…
