This November, Dallas Personal Robotics Group (DPRG) will conduct its annual fall indoor and outdoor competitions.These competitions are more informal than Roborama which is held in May. The club views the November competitions as a place for contestants to try out new ideas and learn. It is an excellent time for beginners to test their first robot, or old hands to try out that idea that “should work”. It is also when DPRG experiments with new contests. Prizes and trophies are rewarded to the contestants that place in the top 3 positions. The contests are open to the public. Anyone can compete (student teams are encouraged) and all are welcome to watch.
