This is it! After a long but funny day, the Robotiq team made its new home into the historic Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury, downtown Quebec City. As the RUC 2018 starts in a few hours time, let's take a look at the final preparation that kept our team working until late last night. One task in particular needed a immense amount of effort: Building the robot programming challenge in the main drill hall.

Thanks to all of those who help bringing the RUC to life. No matter the department, we all play for Robotiq!


Lights down, time for our enginneers to start those Universal Robots. 


It's also time for Amanda to test all the event's presentations on the big screen...
