Team

We are a robotics club at U.C. Berkeley that competes in VEX U competitions at both the regional and international level. Each year, we CAD parts, run FEA simulations, utilize computer vision, and even create custom AI to build our custom built robot. Innovation for this challenge pushes our skills to the limit requiring more than what we're taught in the classroom.

Season

Last season was our first season competing at the Vex U level. We received the Design award at our first competition, and the Judges award at our second competition. We qualified for the World Championships through our high robot skills score, and went on to win the Design award at the World Championships.

Sponsor

We had two primary sponsors last year, Solidworks, who provided us with free software licenses, and Acosta, who provided us with sheet metal that we used for custom parts.
