Battlebots

The objective of UCR’s Battlebots organization is to design a robot from scratch with the intent of entering into competitions.

For competition, the design will focus on designing a fighting robot capable of withstanding opposing machines, obstacles, and competition. Materials needed to create its body, include material components along with electrical components to design a controllable robot using wireless connectivity.

Robosub

UCR RoboSub is a large-scale multidisciplinary project to collaboratively create an autonomous submarine and compete in the international RoboSub competition.

Each year we construct a submarine capable of completing a number of aquatic objectives entirely on its own.

SAE-Aero

Highlander Air (SAE-Aero) is UCR’s only remote controlled airplane design team. The project places emphasis on designing and manufacturing an original design airplane to compete in the international SAE Aero Design competition.

The competition is divided into three classes: Advanced, Regular, and Micro. For the upcoming competition, we are competing in Regular class and are tasked with designing a cargo airplane capable of carrying soccer balls and metal plates. The airplane must fulfill various flight performance and technical inspection objectives.

The project is very Solidworks intensive as the majority of our designing uses this CAD software. To test the validity of our design, we use a computational fluid dynamics software called XFLR5.
