RoboSub 2019 - Day 8

Today was the last day of the competition, which means only one thing. Well, two actually: our finals run (at 4:30 pm, which meant we had a good amount of time to panic before then), and the highly anticipated pool party at the hotel later tonight! Our last practice run was scheduled for 9:00 am, so […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 7

Today was Day Two of semi-finals. We chose the time slot of 12:30 pm for our practice run, which gave us enough time to go to the kiddie pool and practice with the torpedo target. One important goal of our practice run was to determine the approximate location of the octagon. We also tested a […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 6

Yesterday was the first day of semi-final runs. Our semi-final run was booked for 4 pm at Field B, and our first pool test time slot was at 7:30 am at Field C. Field C has the same setup at Field B, so this was good practice for us. However, our 7:30 run wasn’t successful […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 5

I could have slept in a little later than I did this morning. I was up last night writing the blog from the day before and partying with the labelling party (a very PG type of partying; I am aware that I am only nineteen and considered underage in the States). Because of this, I […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 4

The morning team should have consisted of Jon, Juan, Gab, Nicholas, Moira, James, and Andreea. Sadly, Juan and Nicholas missed the van that left at 6:00 am sharp. The vehicle was already gone by the time Juan rushed out, and Nicholas wasn't even aware of the fact that he was a part of the morning […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 2

Yesterday morning, one of the ethernet wires in our recently soldered tether snapped, which meant the Electrical Team needed to re-splice the cable.  The rest of us had it a little easier. We had no food items whatsoever, so it was time to go grocery shopping. We drove to Target and stood there all googly-eyed like […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 1

We were all due to get to the airport at 4:30 am. Maybe Suzana and I would have made in on time if we didn’t get dropped off at the wrong gate (thanks Mom and Dad!). Eventually, the two of us met up with the rest of the team and we made it past domestic […]

Robosub 2019: Prequel

Auri, our robot, is shipped and we are ready to go. While we wait, read a little about our last week before competition. It all started when we said: We have five days to till competition; let us book 18 hours of pool time. To say the least, it was a roller coaster ride full […]
