Hi, I’m Alex. This is my fifth year on the team and I’m one of the co-captains for SWAT 771. I work with the Mechanical & Design and Awards subteams during build season. I had a lot of fun planning SWATposium
in 2016 and 2017.

I’m the programming lead and my subteam is responsible for coding the robot. This includes essential functions, such as driving, as well as more complex commands that might involve the use of sensors. These can improve the robot’s overall accuracy and efficiency.
