Midwestern Robotics Design Competition, is a college level tele-robotics competition. It takes place at UIUC annually in conjunction with their Engineering Open House. EDT has built a history of success with MRDC. We have competed since 2001 and have taken 1st place five times (three of which where in the last three years), as well as placing in the top four almost every year. EDT also frequently wins secondary awards like demolition round and best design. The game has four robots competing at once and the objective of the competition changes every 2 years. Past competitions have included the collection of soccer cones, nerf balls, frisbees,hula hoops,throwing foam balls and putting golf balls.
