R10 Robotics Competition 2023
R10 Robotics Competition is an opportunity for all IEEE Student members and Graduate Student members in IEEE Region 10 (R10) to showcase their innovative robot projects designed for combating climate change and humanitarian challenges. It is also an opportunity for IEEE student members to compete at an international level and demonstrate their capabilities.
The theme for 2023 R10 Robotics Competition is: Robots for Managing Climate Change For a Better World
A robot designed to assist or deal with natural disaster, mitigate climate change threats, eliminate/reduce human sufferings or improve common person life will be considered suitable for the 2023 R10 Robotics Competition.” For details please download the competition document (here).
IEEE Sections will pick the best 2 teams to represent the Section in Stage 2.
In Stage 1 IEEE Sections are encouraged to organize robotics activities such as workshops and technical talks, and arrange robotics competitions and hands-on workshops for school children to inspire young people to STEM. Sections will also attempt to invite local industry leaders and Government officials to these events. These local robotics related activities should also be used as an opportunity to recruit new members and enhance IEEE visibility in the local community.
R10 will conduct online selection process to pick the top ten teams/projects from the nominated teams by the Sections. For Stage 2, the competing team will build the physical prototype of the robot. They will also create a video presentation and a poster to illustrate technical details of the project and functionalities of the robot.
At Stage 3, teams will be required to demonstrate the full functionality of the robot at a physical gathering organized by IEEE Region 10. If the physical gathering is not possible for any reason, then the final stage will be held online.
