    Hey Dave,

    In light of the recent events is there any chance that this year's RoboSub competition may be cancelled or postponed?

    Hi Hasan Akpunar,

    The following announcement was made yesterday by RoboNation:
    The health and safety of the RoboNation community is the highest priority for our team. As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, we know that many regions are facing school closures, travel restrictions, and other challenges that affect each of our daily lives. As a result, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 International SeaPerch Challenge scheduled for May 30-31, 2020 at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland.

    At this time, the remaining RoboNation events in the 2020 Events Schedule are still scheduled for their original dates. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the health, public safety, and transportation authorities in communities where our events are hosted and will use those recommendations to make any future determinations concerning the events.


    This year, we'll be using a group communications app called Band for RoboSub communications. This app will serve as a way for us all to stay connected leading up to competition and on-site at competition. Check in with your Team Lead to be sure you are connected on the app. Hitesh Patel has provided an update on the Band app, and we are currently in the process of setting up a page on our website to keep our RoboNation Community updated.

        At this time, RoboNation plans to hold RoboSub as scheduled in August. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the health, public safety, and transportation authorities in communities where our events are hosted and will use those recommendations to make any future determinations concerning the events.
