Team DRC-Hubo participated at the Miami Trails as a Track A team, led by Drexel University. The team lead and robot re-located to the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) in August 2014. The robot was recently upgraded and a new team, primarily made up of UNLV researchers, has been formed as a Track D effort.
