Let’s watch Robot Weightlifting The robot should first grab the weight then it has to reach the white line in the middle to lift the weight up 15 centimeters
then it has to cross the final line We have 6 teams participating to this category.
It requires strength, endurance and balance. Strength to lift up the weight of the discs,
endurance because the robots are not allowed to recharge during each round and balance
to be able to carry the discs without falling. And the more discs, the harder it is to balance!
Of course all these robots are autonomous. Nobody controls them and nobody can touch
them. The robots have cameras to guide themselves
through the field. They are given several tries and always start with just a few discs
to be sure to finish at least one time but then they have to increase the number of discs
they carry to win. The one finishing with the most discs wins. TKU is trying 60 discs also Now you can see that TKU and aiRobots are
