UW Robotics Teams sweeps this year's Robot Racing competition
The 2015 International Autonomous Robot Racing Challenge is now complete, and it was a very exciting event with multiple teams showing big gains in terms of racing autonomy. The weather was rather wet on Friday, but Saturday was gorgeous, sunny and hot, and we had a great day of drag and circuit racing. All teams demonstrated true autonomy on the drag course, and both Waterloo and Western completed the entire circuit course loop autonomously.
