Thu, 04/25/2013 - 17:29

Fifty teams are competing with their autonomous robots in the finals of the yearly UGent robot competition. This year's theme is SUMO: in one-against-one fights two autonomous robots have to push their opponent out of a ring.

The competition is organized by members of this lab in collaboration with Dwengo, a non-profit organisation that stimulates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) among youngsters. Participants, students with various backgrounds, are challenged to build an autonomous robot.

Friends, family members and supporters are all welcome to enjoy the spectacle on Tuesday, April 30th at 19h00 in "het Technicum" (Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 41). More information (and movies from previous editions) on the website of the IEEE student branch.
