Hack the Arduino Robot!

RobotChallenge is an international championship for self-made, autonomous, and mobile robots taking place in Vienna (Austria) since 2004. Each year robots compete in different competitions – Robot Sumo, Line Follower, Air Race, Humanoid Sprint, Puck Collect and Freestyle . This year RobotChallenge in cooperation with Arduino and RS Components presents a new open source competition called:  ”Hack the Arduino Robot!”.

To apply for this competition you need to submit a short description of your project idea (up to 120 words) until the 26th of January responding to the following questions:

  •     What would you do with an Arduino Robot?
  •     What makes your idea special?
  •     What real life problem does your robot solve?

An international jury will select the 10 best project ideas based on feasibility, creativity and innovation. The selected teams will receive a brand new Arduino Robot for free to implement their project ideas and are invited to present their robots at RobotChallenge 2014.

Open source is all abot sharing with the community: Therefore each team has to document their project online and submit a short video (3 - 5 minutes) until the 23rd of February. Prizes donated by RS Components will be awarded in two categories: Best project & documentation Award and Community Award.
