Robocon encourages engineers to tackle problems in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence. Each year the competition has different topics, but generally speaking two or more robots must be used to complete the tasks. One of the robots would be manual control while the others are automatic. The best robots usually weight more than 10kg and span in one square meter area. To build the robots, contestants, who are restricted to be undergraduate students, must possess rich knowledge in programming, mechanical design and electronic circuit design.
Robotic Contests (Robocons)
Organised by Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) and its member countries including Doordasrshan (Prasarbharati) of India offer young engineers a platform to innovate and excel in creative thinking. Here, they demonstrate their technical ideas in robotics, as well as establish cross cultural contacts in an environment. These events also offer great opportunity to broadcasting agencies for advancing their technological skills and international cooperation.
