Combat Robot Competition Rescheduled

DATE:  April 20, 2013     CATEGORIES:  Robotics

Due to the recent Boston lockdown, we have decided to reschedule our Combat Robot competition from this Sunday to this coming Wednesday, starting at 6PM. Please note that the event is held at Arts at the Armory, and not Artisan’s Asylum, and that parking is available on location.

What: Autonomous Combat Robots Competition
Where: Arts at the Armory; 191 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA
When: Wednesday, April 24th, from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM


8 teams from across Greater Boston have spent the past week designing and building fighting robots from scratch in a competition sponsored by Artisan’s Asylum and MathWorks and supported by Sparkfun Electronics. These robots have a weight limit of 10 pounds, and are designed to be fully autonomous; no human being is telling them what to do! Come see what each team has come up with, and watch them compete for an AeroQuad Arduino-controlled quadcopter!

In the meantime, check out this teaser picture of one of our teams’ robots, the Iron Lady:
