The competition took a year off and is now back in full force. The individual rounds, of which a total of 106 teams took part in November, brought 32 advancers, three other teams received a wild card, and two university teams from FEE CTU also take part in the competition.
As in previous years, this year’s main goal was to fulfill the assigned task with the help of the LEGO Mindstorms kit. This time it was given the name ROBO waiter and the main role was played by balance – the robot had to autonomously cross a straight track with a variable slope, but without a guide line. he had to keep a wheelchair on his platform.
