The Autonomous Robot Club (ARC) is a group of (nerds) robotics enthusiasts situated at the University of Calgary - Schulich School of Engineering. Our club consists of various students from all fields and majors, graduate and undergraduate, who all share a love and passion for robotics.

Here at ARC, our vision is to give students an opportunity to practice and apply what they have studied, and in the process, gain further knowledge of their skills in the development of robotics and autonomous systems in a team-oriented environment. For us to maintain this commitment, we:
1.Consult professors and technicians for technical guidance.
2.Embrace diversity by accepting students from different departments of all educational levels.
3.Challenge ourselves and our team to strive for excellence.

Our goal in 2015-2016 was to build an operating autonomous vehicle to go through the basic IGVC (Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition) course by March 2016. We succeeded and won the Rookie of the Year award in Rochester, Michigan (June 3-6)!
