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 is participating in the Artemis Orchestra Contest to build a robot band that can participate in an orchestra.

The team is unique in combining industry experience in embedded, intelligent systems, from daily work with long term friendship and experience in robot building. The teams 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.
