Ri3D (Robot in 3 Days)

 

 

Located in the Student Design Concept Lab and the Engineering Machine Shop in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS) we design, build and program robots in three days to complete the annual challenges of the FIRST Robotics Competition.

 

  

About Us

Located in Ontario Tech's Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) facility, we design, build and program robots in three days to complete the annual challenges of the FIRST Robotics Competition. With a team of over 100 dedicated students, we strive to provide innovative and creative solutions to relevant engineering issues that we face in today's modern society.

Every year, the FIRST Robotics Competition releases a new challenge to both high school and community robotics teams around the world, each consisting of students in grades 9 through 12. At the end of the kickoff event in January, the teams are then faced with the task of designing and building a robot that is suited to compete in the challenge against the robots of other teams.

In the hopes of presenting insight and different design concepts to competing FRC teams, we explore different approaches to the game and live stream the course of our 3 day build season on our YouTube and Twitch channels, as well as publish coding resources on our GitHub. We also offer a mentorship program for local high school robotics teams.
