London, 28 January 2018:
The first ever Libyan Robotic Championship was announced this weekend. Details are still sketch, but the event will involve Libyan participants building their own moving robots to compete for a championship prize.
It is presumed that the competition will be based on the lines of the famous British TV series Robot Wars.
Organizers have announced three categories for the competition:
The first is in the ‘’ball collection’’ category where robots must try to collect as many balls as possible within a set time.
The second is the ‘‘Sumo’’ where robots must try to push each other out of a certain area. The final category is what the organizers called the ‘’line following challenge’’, where robots must follow a predetermined line.
The organizers said that the event is aimed at encouraging free engineering and technical thinking in creativity by youth in a competitive atmosphere.
The event is organized by Libyan NGO Hexa Connection.
