Abstract

Although Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is considered a leader in robotics research and education, it has never specifically hosted a collegiate robotics competition. Through background research on other collegiate robotics competitions, discussions with both representatives from universities and robotics companies, and stakeholders at WPI we have developed a proposal for a collegiate robotics competition. This event would be hosted at WPI in collaboration with TouchTomorrow, a campus-wide event showcasing science and technology in early June. This event would consist of three separate challenges based on real-world problems. These challenges combined with a robotics career fair and networking opportunities would provide many long-term benefits to the school.
