Recap of the UK Student Robot Challenge

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Robot competitions are in the air these days, what with the recent Battlebots competition in Massachusetts and the earlier Student Robot Challenge in the UK. Here’s an update from Tanya Morton, who ran the event in England.

A few weeks ago, MathWorks hosted a Student Robot Challenge at our new office building in Cambridge. The event was a great success. The students had fun and learned plenty about modelling, simulation, control design, code generation, and teamwork. I wrote a blog about the event here:

Fun, learning, and drama at the MathWorks Student Robot Challenge

We’ve compiled a brand-new video with the highlights of the day, which explains more about the contest and shows the LEGO MINDSTORM NXT robots in action!
