En 2013, Vigilant s'est joint à DRW, une entreprise de spécialisée en transactions boursière mondiale basée à Chicago, pour mieux profiter de l’expérience de chaque entreprise. Au cours des six dernières années, nous avons bénéficié de cette synergie afin d’exploiter au maximum nos connaissances collectives. Dans cet esprit, en février prochain, Vigilant adoptera officiellement la marque DRW.

In 2013, Vigilant came together with DRW, a Chicago-based principal trading firm, to better leverage each firm's expertise. Over the past 6 years, we've benefited from this synergy to best harness our collective knowledge. In the spirit of that, this coming February Vigilant will officially take on the DRW brand.

New hopes for First Robotics 2015 season

Back

For the fourth year running, some of our colleagues at Vigilant have teamed up with students from LaSalle Community Comprehensive High School to build a competition-ready robot for Robotique FIRST Quebec.

This year’s six week build period began on a high note, with students and VG mentors rising to the challenge by finalizing the concept for their robot during the first two weeks. To win the competition, our bot will need to be able to stack and place objects on the playing field and outpace the other teams doing the same.

The team decided to up their strategy for the 2015 challenge by building two robots simultaneously. The first robot was completed just short of the build period deadline and will be used in the competition. The second robot will be used to test impending improvements to the original bot during the upcoming weeks, right up until competition weekend on March 21st.

Our head mentor was especially impressed by the new LCCHS recruits and says that “the students were more involved in the build this year than they have any previous year. This year in particular our most dedicated and improved students [are two girls who] came in rather shy at the beginning [and are now] my star students.”

Both students and mentors feel there is lots of work left to do before FIRST weekend, but are willing to pull their weight to get it done. We are confident that our best robot to date will perform like a champion on game day!
