Autonomy is one of the most demanding, interesting, and applicable challenges in robotics today. The Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition is one which allows students and universities to showcase their innovative approaches to autonomous robot control.
Last year EDT was able to enter our robot Scipio, outfitted with an array of navigation sensors, into the IGVC where it performed strongly, particularly in design, where it recieved 3rd place. We are building on our previous efforts this year, and hope to achieve success in the remaining categories.
The team is headed by EDT Vice President Zach Quinn (Senior, Electrical Engineering), with the computer science team being lead by Basheer Subei (Senior, Bio-Engineering).
