Starting this year Robochallenge will have a new competition - Line Follower

The regulations can be found here: http://www.robochallenge.ro/en/regulations/view/id/28

Monday, 13th of July 2015, 18:00, room A101 in Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology will be the official opening of the RoboChallenge Summer School.

We have the pleasure to announce a new challenge in the competition 'Freestyle Showcase' .
Its first edition will be at this year's Robochallenge.
The regulations can be read on this page: http://www.robochallenge.ro/en/regulations/view/id/17
 
In the next weeks we will publish the regulations for a new challenge: 'Humanoid robot'

     Robochallenge Summer School started from our desire to be closer to our contestants, to offer them the support and guidance needed in order for them to build a competitive robot.

     The trainees receive mechanics, electronics and programming classes, but also, the fact we think it is the most important: experience exchange with former contestants and trainees.

     We set up a laboratory, equipped with necessary means for testing and developing robots: measuring devices, tools for PCB making and necessary design software. Optimum functionality of robots can be tested on fields similar to the ones used in the official competition, therefore sensors and robot parameters can be calibrated.

     At its fourth edition, Robochallenge Summer School will take place during 15th of July-15th of September, where we promise to offer our support , advice and useful practical examples for developing a competitive robot. The classes and laboratories will be held every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, after 6:00 p.m. , and all the details will be announced at our first meeting.

     If you consider words as robots, programming, electronics or mechanics are true mysteries or sound very familiar, we are waiting for you to reveal them together! Let’s build this summer the robot you will be competing with at the next Robochallenge edition!

We are very honored and proud to announce that starting this year, the first three places of the Mega-Sumo class will receive an official invitation to attend to the All Japan Robot-Sumo Tournament in Tokyo (https://www.facebook.com/AllJapanRobotSumoTournament?fref=ts or http://www.fsi.co.jp/sumo/en/), in mid-December, as a courtesy of Fujisoft Inc. Accommodation and meals will be provided for the entire stay, but transportation to and from Tokyo will have to be covered by the participants.

Starting today, Innovation Labs is OPEN for candidates. Do you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur?
