Discover Autobotz

Autobotz is a research team on autonomous robotics created on 2012. The team is composed of Engineering undergraduate students from multiple areas and is led by Professor Guilherme Vianna Raffo from the Department of Electronic Engineering of the School of Engineering of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG). Institutionally, Autobotz is part of the MACRO research group focused on mechatronics, control and robotics.

The team aims to develop autonomous robots, from the mechanical and electronic project to the navigation, including computer vision, movement control and simulation. The robots are validated in robotics competitions such as the IEEE Open and the IEEE VSS Soccer.
