So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

1st Evaah PNW MATE Competition!

Posted by Deliverator on May 13th, 2006

Spent the day at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way attending the MATE underwater robotics competition. This is the first time a MATE regional has been held in the northwest, so almost all the teams there were rookies. I was very impressed with the quality and functionality of the robots, especially given that most teams had no experience with underwater robotics and some had no experience with robotics at all, prior to the competition. In all, about a dozen teams from Oregon, Washington and B.C. participated. I hope that next year, the TRC will be among them.

My father is still using the nice camera up at Lake Chelan, so unfortunately I only have pictures from my Nokia 6620’s rather poor phone-cam.
