About Us


Motivation, Inspiration, and Passion!

Triton Robotics was founded in 2018 by a group of aspiring engineers who wanted to participate in RoboMaster, a robotics competition held in Shenzhen, China. Triton Robotics consists of members from all engineering majors, including Mechanical, Aerospace, Computer Science, Bioengineering, Structural, etc.

Our mission statement is “Diligence and Pride as a collegiate enterprise for expanding robotics and system engineering applications to students at UCSD.”

As a member of Triton Robotics, there is an expectation to approach new ideas and concepts with an open mind. As students, we do not claim to be experts in the field, but many members share a refreshing interest towards applying multi-disciplinary fields into their robots. Our leaders hope to instill the same passion they have for robotics into the team. When building something great, Triton Robotics wants to achieve industry-level work. In essence, our approach is built upon the imagination and creativity as problem solvers, but we also focus on practicality of development cycles and budget costs. We hope as you navigate this website that you can understand the passion that each student brings to the team!

Our goal at competition is to be the best international team in RoboMaster. We hope you can be a part of that journey.

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!
