Welcome to the official site for the Boba-F.E.T. team. We are three MIT students competing in 6.270, a.k.a. "MIT's Autonomous Robot Design Competition" or "The Lego Robot Thing." Just to clarify the meaning of our name, we are not a bunch of nerds or Star Wars freaks. The competition has a Star Wars theme this year, and our initials conveniently are F, E, and T. We are ASIAN therefore, we like drinking this stuff called Boba. Coincidentally, these two things happen to spell out the name of that famed bounty hunter in Star Wars.Explore
That being said...we designed this website to describe the competition, how our robot works, and the struggles that we had as we went through the class.
