Participate in a robot-building extravaganza!
RoboHacks is a robotics hackathon hosted by McGill Robotics at McGill University.
We welcome students from CÉGEP to post-graduate! Teams are highly encouraged, but the maximum team size is 6.
You need to build a robot. A robot has the following qualities:
- Contains electrical, mechanical, and software components
- Has some moving parts
- Collects information about its environment in some way
- Responds to its environment in some way
