2011 10,000 Lakes Regional 2011

From March 31st to April 2nd, we participated in the 10,000 Lakes Regional Competition, held in the Williams Arena on the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis Campus. We learned from our experiences at the Wisconsin Regional to better our team and our robot. Between the two regionals we developed a new minibot and minibot deployment system. We also continued to improve our autonomous code to consistently hang an Ubertube.

We ended qualification rounds at 6th place from a group of 63 teams. For our alliance we chose Teams 2232: Deus ex Machina and 2545: Quantum Mechanics. In quarter-finals, our alliance lost one round and won the next; in the determining round, our alliance lost: 72 to 89. Our team earned both Rockwell Automation’s Innovation in Control Award and UL’s Industrial Safety Award. Safety in C.O.R.E. is more than a concept or idea–it is a culture. Our members distributed safety manuals and gave safety presentations at the 10,000 Lakes and North Star Regionals.
