RoboNation Competitions

RoboNation focuses on the future of robotics by developing hands-on educational programs and autonomous competitions that attract and equip students for a career in this rapidly growing field. These autonomous competitions include RoboBoat, RoboSub, RobotX. Using MATLAB and Simulink, students can control their robotic platforms, simulate their environment and develop algorithms quickly

The Robotics Association at Embry-Riddle (RAER) is a student organization at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach that supports student teams taking part in international student competitions like the NASA Robotic Mining Competition and the RoboNation suite of competitions.
