Engineering build "Uber" style robots (VIDEO)

What did you do with your summer?

UBC engineering physics students spent theirs building autonomous robots to compete in the program's annual competition. The second-year students had five weeks to build a robot with their teams.

The robots had to navigate a model city, picking up stuffed animal passengers and dropping them off at a specific location. Robots competed head-to-head, racing to pick up as many passengers as two minutes as possible.

Check out the video from Metro to see the robots in action, as well as several hit-and-runs and collisions.

The competition is the final exam for an annual summer course second year engineering physics students are required to take.
