Allgemeine information

Welcome to the first ever Queen's Robotics Cup!!! This will be the first time that Queen's University has hosted an event and we aim to make it the best event in Canada. We are looking to get 12 teams from across North America to compete in both a tournament bracket and skills competition, followed by an awards banquet.

Queen's University is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, partway between the major cities of Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. You can drive here via highway ON-401. You can also fly into either Toronto (YYZ or YTZ), Ottawa (YOW) or Montreal (YUL), and travel to Kingston by bus (several options) or train (VIA Rail Canada). There are also nearby airports in upstate New York, including Watertown (ART), Rochester (ROC), and Buffalo (BUF), but there are not any straightforward transit connections from these airports to Kingston.

We are in discussions with local hotels to provide discounted group rates; information on this will be communicated to teams once you register.


Judging Format

Digital Engineering Notebook Submissions / In Person Team Interviews: Team interviews will be conducted in-person at the event. Engineering notebooks will be submitted digitally for evaluation via a link found within the "My Account" panel of the team contact on RobotEvents. The submission deadline will be approximately 1 week before the event; details will be communicated to teams in due course.
