While all GRT members are taught how to CAD and machine in the shop, GRT contains several subgroups where members can receive specialized training in specific areas of robotics. During build season, subgroup members are assigned special tasks related to their area of expertise. At GRT, our seven subgroups are:
Responsible for robot software, wiring, and electrical components.
Responsible for designing and machining gearboxes for the robot's drivetrain.
Responsible for operating our CNC mill.
Responsible for designing and operating pneumatic systems on the robot.
