ROBOFEST 2019

ROBOFEST 2019

This year’s highly anticipated Robofest competition saw more than 130 school and 30 university registrations. Organised by SLIIT’s Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, this year’s Robofest event was yet again focused on the potential of tomorrow’s inventors, from 3 different categories: School, University, and Open.

Competing in teams of 5 members, participants are required to come up with innovative and practical ways of exercising theories and practices in the world of robotics, applying them to the project in question. This year the project was curated based on the micro-mouse challenges, where participants were required to build a miniature robot that could get through a maze and reach its final destination within the shortest time.

SCHOOL COMPETITION

The School category is open for the students from schools islandwide. A team must comprise the maximum of 5 members in which all the members must be from the same School. Competitors will have to design a mobile robot capable of navigating through lines and achieving the final goal using color sorting methods. Total School participants: 134
