Here’s a list of some of the club’s ongoing projects

Combat Robotics

As an introductory project in the Fall semester, we divide the club into teams that make 3 pound combat robots that face off in a tournament on the SEC Patio in late Fall. In the Spring semester we use the skills we’ve gained from the fall and make robots to send the Norwalk Havoc Robot League’s combat robotics competition in Connecticut. 


Harvard PacBot Competition

Starting in 2018 we have started attending the Harvard PacBot competition. A physical version of the classic arcade game in which projected ghosts chase the robot around a maze.



Drivable Couch Bed

We are hoping to see the return of the drivable couch this semester in the form of a bunk bed. The couch was fully motorized and driven around the academic quad to advertise the club, as well as just freak people out.


Club members are also working on various personal projects, drone projects, underwater robotics, and soccer robots!



Past Projects

Firefighting Robots

Every year, the club participates in the Trinity Firefighting Competition, in which teams build robots that can autonomously navigate a maze, find a candle, and put it out. Points are given for getting the shortest times and completing certain challenges.

Intel Cornell Cup

In 2014, the club entered into the Intel Cornell Cup, an embedded systems competition, for the first time. We plan to continue participating in this competition, in which teams use embedded computing to solve a problem of their choice. Our first year, we built a novel rendition of the universal gripper which used hydraulics to increase power efficiency.
