NURC Team Water Buffaloes

Note: 2013 was the last year NURC was held for High School Teams

A small but dedicated group of water buffaloes once again works to exceed prior years' attempts to build and compete in NURC.

A word about controls: in 2009 and 2010 we experimented with using a Wii-mote for control of the bot; it tested effective both on a land-based frame as well as in the underwater environment, but in 2011 we elected to return to a Logitech controller.

In the area of frame construction, we have experimenting with the use of 80/20 extruded metal for framing. This gave us great flexibilty in design and fabrication but we elected to return to using PVC to control costs.
