The Internal Competition is an annual robotics competition hosted by the Stony Brook Robotics Team at Stony Brook University for new members, robotics enthusiasts, and interested students from the university. Every Fall, students from all across campus delve into the field of robotics, learn engineering fundamentals, and build their own robots. The competition primarily focuses on a set of objectives that must be accomplished by a robot that is built to specifications provided by SBRT. Tools, materials, and other resources are provided by SBRT to participants so that they can build robots without any hindrance other than the competition rules.
The Internal Competition starts in mid-September and provides approximately six weeks of design and building time before the competition day in November. Participants are organized into teams of 4-6 members who collaboratively build a robot. During the build period, SBRT hosts workshops on mechanical CAD, microcontrollers and, programming for students to develop their skills as they build their robots. On competition day in November, faculty, staff, and students from across the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences are invited to watch the showcase.
