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.
