Purdue ACM SIGBots is Purdue University’s VEX U robotics team. Every year, we participate in the VEX U Robotics Competition, and we have qualified for the World Championships each season for the past seven seasons— for those of you counting, that’s every season since the club has been around!
2013/14 - Toss Up
The 2013-14 season was one with a heavy emphasis on electronics and software development. The Watchdog Sensor received a form factor upgrade and the R.A.D.I.U.S. Array was created. These developments earned the team another Innovate Award at the VEX U World Championships.
2012/13 - Sack Attack
The 2012-13 season marked the first release of PROS, along with a “hunting” algorithm and visualization tool for autonomous programming. These innovations earned the team the prestigious Innovation Award and a second place finish in the programming skills section of the VEX College Challenge World Championships.
2011/12 - Gateway
The team placed second overall in the third annual VEX Robotics All-Star Challenge, earning the Tournament Finalist and Judges’ Award trophies.
