  Team Information

The Professional Engineers of Ontario have adjusted the requirement for program accreditation such that fourth-year projects must now contain a management component. This will be worked into the robotics course by requiring one member from each team to act as a "team manager". The manager must also contribute a significant amount of technical assistance, and would most logically be involved with the overall system design, or perhaps the hardware/software interface.

Each team will be organized around the responsibilities:

  • Manager - planning, time budget, fallback plans, system design, etc
  • Hardware - electrical power, sensors, interconnects, circuit design, etc
  • Software - behavioural definitions, sensor drivers, communication, etc

The teams participating in the RoboTag course are comprised of fourth-year engineering students from the Department of Electronics and the Department of Computer and Systems Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering and Design at Carleton University. These teams are as follows:

Several external teams are also competing as follows:



Group #1 - Team S.C.U.D.

Team S.C.U.D. (Self-Controlled Unit Design) are on the web at http://www.robotag.com. The team has not yet decided on names for the two robots.
