2014 – Rohrbot

Created with Sketch.

Name

Rohrbot

Our team overwhelmingly supported the name Rohrbot. It was named after Matt Rohr Daniel, the team’s former lead engineering mentor. Matt was an excellent mentor, contributing a lot to our engineering efforts with his sense of humor and friendliness. Our team named our robot to honor him after he moved to California where he works with medical robots.
