August 3, 2014 - Day 7: Why do all good things come to an end

Last day, last chance, and last food truck meal. Even if we go to bed at 3 AM, we'll wake up at 6:30 AM and get to TRANSDEC by 7:30. I don't know how but this sleep schedule works. Maybe we'll feel different when we get back home to 8 hours of sleep a night. […]

RoboSub 2014 - August 2, 2014 - Day 6: Sleep, where are thou

After some of our members staying up till 3:30 AM, waking up and getting to TRANSDEC by 5:30 AM was not gonna happen. We did get to TRANSDEC by 7:30 AM where we found out that the practice slots were all full and there were 15 teams waiting for a slot at 5:30 AM. Dedicated […]

RoboSub 2014 - July 30, 2014 - Day 3: We came, we saw, we qualified!

I had hoped the rest of the team had gone to bed early but sadly they were not in bed till 4 AM which made our morning commute to TRANSDEC a bit edgy with lack of sleep. Mike, Rumman, Veselin and Alvin had spent their night trying to fix the bug, including an additional test […]

RoboSub 2014 - July 29, 2014 - Day 2: The TRANSDEC Experience

I awoke in the middle of my peaceful sleep to find Mike trying to turn off my loud phone alarm set for 6:30 AM. My first thought was simply 'Why did I set an alarm so early in the morning?' I soon realized that today was the first day at TRANSDEC, the pool at the […]

RoboSub 2014 - July 28, 2014 - Day 1: Another Year, Another Robot

Well, here we are again, with another year of RoboSub upon us. We've been working hard this year making improvements and changes to Aqua Ursa for this year to meet our lofty expectations from last year. With SubmURSA definitively retired, it's time to see what Aqua Ursa can do, and if it can match (or […]
