TeamDARE is a small team of enthousiastic engineering specialists that share a common hobby: building robots!. The team originates from an internship at the TU/e back in 2001, while participating at Eurobot. Ever since, TeamDARE has been building robots and participated at competitions such as Robot Wars in 2002 and Eurobot in 2005 and 2006. Since 2008, TeamDARE builds music robots
The team is unique in combining industry daily experience in embedded, intelligent systems, with long term friendship and experience in robot building. The team's strength is its balance and synergy between mechanics, electronics and computer science. This and help from sponsors make it possible for the team members to combine these endeavors with their full time jobs.
TeamDARE always strives to develop and design their own solutions, with attention to simplicity and low cost. This includes circuit design and layout, building and designing mechanical constructions that require a minimum amount of difficult-to-construct parts, and software design with a preference for open source and solutions that are backed-up by thriving software communities.
Currently TeamDARE is working on a new band member: Iggy, the blue and hairy mechatronic puppet.
