In the 2010 NURC (National Underwater Robotics Competition) our team earned 2nd place in our division, as well as impressing judges with our modular robot design
Our performance at the 2010 MATE Competition (Marine Advanced Technology Education Center) earned us 6th place (out scoring both MIT and Georgia Tech). Our team captain Mike Veto exemplified our team's effort by winning the "Engineering MVP" Award.
Our first year at NURC we showed what strong teamwork could do, we had 3 drivers controlling 2 robots working together to complete the objectives. We earned 2nd place in the college division, and learned a lot on how we could prepare for our next competition.
After our success at NURC, we had high hopes for the MATE Competition. We again demonstrated our strong team spirit, having 3 drivers controlling a single robot. This new approach at ROV control impressed the judges, earning us the "Aloha Team Spirit Award". We had strong competition, but managed to earn 6th place, out preforming some of the top engineering schools in the country.
