Canadian International Rover Challenge (CIRC)

CIRC is a competition which takes place every August. Teams from around the world each build a rover suitable for completing a variety of tasks on Mars. These tasks include: Crash Site Forensics, Surface Sampling, Equipment Servicing, Search and Rescue, and Traversal and Support.

For more information, please refer to the official competition site.

Workshops

UGRT hosts a variety of workshops throughout the year. These serve as a way to introduce new members to the field of robotics.

Sumo bots

At the beginning of each year we host an introductory sumo bot competition for all of our new members. This is meant to teach our members the basics of programming Arduinos to use different sensors and actuators. This serves as a starting point for them to build onto while they're on the team.
