UF Robotics Places 4th at ASABE AIM 17

The UF ABE robotics team celebrates 4th place in the ASABE AIM 2017 Robotics Competition – this is great progress from last year’s 8th place.

The competition consisted of 13 robotics teams at this year’s ASABE Annual International Meeting in Spokane, Washington.

Again this year, the team was mentored by ABE PhD student Hao Gan and faculty Dr. Wonsuk Lee.

Other team members include graduate students Akram Gholami and Shirin Ghatresamani and undergraduate students Eduardo Carrascal and Tyler Poon (Mechanical Engineering).

This year’s competition task was to simulate raspberry farm pruning. With it’s stealthy but aggressive skill, the team robot was affectionately named the “Snapping Turtle.”

Congratulations to the UF ABE Robotics Team!
