HR Sunday Edition – Group Project Pitch Day!

January 27 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm UTC-6

Sunday group is kick starting the year and itself by hosting a group project pitch day. Here you can pitch your robot idea that you think will be interesting and mentally stimulating for a group of people to work on. Prior Houston Robotics group robot projects ARIEL and Sonik started out from a pitch idea. Yours might be the next one!

Pitch Day Criteria:
– no more than 2 minute long pitch per robot concept

– If using a PowerPoint, plan to bring display device. No guarantee TXRX will have what is needed for your presentation right then, right there

– be prepared for Q&A after you present

– have an educational concept (ex. pneumatics, flight, telepresence, etc) in mind that a group can learn about through building the project

– For Sunday group projects: Software limited to only three platforms*
> Python > OpenCV > ROS
* Plan for your project to use only these three platforms. No others are allowed.

How it Works
– After all presentations are heard, a simple ‘yes’ or ‘nay’ vote conducted in rounds until the project with the most votes remains. If still a tie in the end, the group will discuss the merits of each and decide which warrants more attention.

Start Time:
Pitches begin at 3pm
