Robosub 2018 Days 2,3, & 4: Auri Awakens - The Road To Semifinals

By Jon Machinski The road to semifinals was not as easy as we had hoped. We did start off day 2 right, I woke up at 5:45 am and got to the daily draw a little late, but still got us a 12 noon start time. This was alright since we could use the setup […]

Robosub 2018 Day 1: Building Auri

By Susana Trac Monday was the day the Mechanical team arrived at competition, which conveniently coincided with the day our shipping crate finally showed up at the hotel.
