For a number of years now National Instruments (NI) has been running an autonomous robotics competition (called NI ARC) open to teams from tertiary institutions across Australia and New Zealand. The University of Auckland has competed in this for a number of years and the plan is to do the same for 2018. Each year the task has involved the development of a fully functioning autonomous robot designed to solve some particular task. Teams can have a maximum of six students. We are planning on a team of four this year comprising one project group from ECE and one from Mechanical Engineering.
