UTRA stands for the University of Toronto Robotics Association. We are the largest active robotics group on campus. Our mission is to foster interests in robotics, and teach anybody who is interested all that they need to know to be able to contribute. We are currently running 5 sub-teams at varying technical skill levels, making it easy for both beginners and veterans to embrace their passion in robotics. Our 5 sub-teams include SUMO, RoboSoccer, Combat, Autonomous Rover Team (ART), and Robonars. Visit our website, www.utra.ca for more information!
UTRAHacks will be hosted at the Myhal centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Toronto, on March 18-19, 2023.
