what is robocon
It is an annual robot contest starting from 2002, just for university, college and polytechnic students in the Asia-Pacific region. Under a common set of rules, participants will compete with their peers in other countries to create a robot using their creative and technological abilities in an open competition. This contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests who will lead their countries in the 21st Century, as well as help advance engineering and broadcasting technologies in the region. This event will be broadcast in your country through an ABU member broadcaster.
when will it be held
The 6th ABU Robocon is scheduled on 26 August in 2007, in Hanoi with VTV-Vietnam as the host broadcaster. Subsequently, ABU members will take turns hosting the event every year.
who can participate
Each team comprised of four members (three students and one instructor) from the same University, Polytechnic or College. Team members must enroll in University, Polytechnic or College at the time of the international contest. Master students or Postgraduates are not qualified.
Travel and hotel expenses for the representative team to participate in the finals in KL will be borne by the ABU. There will also be special awards for teams with outstanding inventiveness.
how to compete
One team represents one country/region. If there is more than one team from each country/region, the local broadcaster may hold a domestic contest to select its best team to represent them.
what is the theme
They vary from year to year. The theme for the second Robocon will be “Halong Bay Discovery”. Themes chosen will be interesting and will hopefully encourage as many university and polytechnic students to take part, regardless of technological and financial constraints.
what should you do
Simple, just contact the ABU member broadcaster in your region.
