This week five team members and Dr. Schwartz drove down to Orlando to participate in AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems 2014 conference. This was my first time at the conference and I was blown away with the size of the event. Never before had I seen so many robots in one (giant) room. The conference was like Comic-Con for engineers.
During the three days in Orlando, we established a few contacts with distributors and were able to get some good advice on how to construct our new propulsion system. Having our own booths, many different companies stopped by and asked us questions about our platforms. It was a great learning experience and we all had a great time.
