AN AUTONOMOUS ROBOTICS TEAM (formerly UBC Snowbots)
We are an engineering student design team at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Our team consists of members across many disciplines who are passionate about engineering, robotics, and the future. Each year, we apply our knowledge and creative talents to build robots capable of navigating challenging terrain without human input, and compete against robotics teams from around the world.
Autonomous navigation technology finds applications in diverse fields, such as mining site expeditions, personal vehicle transport, and search and rescue missions.
We are looking for ambitious students who have a desire to learn and contribute their skills to ensure that UBC remains a pioneer in autonomous technologies.
We competed again this year at the Canadian International Rover Challenge (CIRC) in Drumheller, Alberta. While we faced many difficulties during the competition, our rover and team members also worked hard to achieve some success in our tasks. It was a great learning opportunity for us and we’re excited to make more progress this year with everything we’ve learned!
This past summer our team travelled to Drumheller, Alberta to compete in the Canadian International Rover Challenge 2022. We are proud to announce that we placed third in the competition! Over the 4 days we had the opportunity to meet teams from all over Canada and the United States, learn new things, and grow as a team. We are so proud of the work our members have put into this project to get us to this point, and we look forward to this coming year to improve upon our design for CIRC 2023!
