Captain’s Summary:

It’s been a great honor leading, working with, and getting to know each one of the members from Triton Robotics in the past year. I understand how hard it is for an international team like us that has absolutely minimum experience and very limited financial support to qualify and attend RoboMaster. But we’ve made it to the arena eventually; we have shown the world the robots we designed, manufactured, and assembled; we have proven ourselves capable of achieving our goal by overcoming all of the challenges encountered; we represented UCSD the best way we could by showing our confidence, our sportsmanship, and our determination.

I especially thank those who personally made it to Shenzhen two weeks before the competition and spent days and nights modifying and bettering the robots with me. This means so much to me and there is no way that I could make it happen on my own. Thank you! All of you are true heroes.

We have witnessed many great things other teams has done, whether it’s their design, their playing style, their team atmosphere, etc. There is still a long road ahead for Triton Robotics, and I hope everyone can stay excited as we continue to excel and make great things happen.

RoboMaster, see you next year!
