About ABU Robocon:
ABU Robocon 2018 is an International Robotic Competition, held annually in ABU member countries. The competition directly encourages the development of artificial intelligence, mechatronics, and robotic technology as an engineering discipline. Also, it aims to cultivate innovation and creativity among future engineers.
The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests, as well as help the advancement of engineering and technology in the region. The participating countries include several countries from the Asia-Pacific region, who are the members of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. The national broadcasters of these member countries host the national competition in their country.
Each year, the host country releases the theme. It consists of a number of tasks, to be completed by one or more robots. The tasks are to be completed within specified time, according to the rules decided by that country. Each country selects one team to represent that country in the International Robocon competition. In India, the team is selected through a national level competition usually held in March, at Pune. To build the robots, students require a rich knowledge in programming, mechanical design, and electronic circuit design.
