CU Robotics

Competitive Robotics at CU Boulder


Our Mission

Design. Build. Code. Compete.

At CU Robotics, we provide students with a dynamic engineering environment that prepares them for the workplace. Every year, members work together to build a fleet of robots for the worlds most competitive collegiate robotics tournament in the world, using the same technology that's applied in the robotics industry.


The Competition

The RoboMaster Robotics Competition is an annual series in which over 400 universities from around the world have eight months to build a fleet of robots. At the end of the year, teams converge at their local tournament with aspirations of advancing to the prestigious final tournament. The RoboMaster game is played in a head-to-head format, where one team pits their fleet against another.  Some robots are driven by human operators via an FPV camera; Others are fully autonomous, and must rely on AI object detection, real-time localization, and agile decision making.
