Robots Intellect competition in Lithuania
« on: March 06, 2012, 01:54:55 PM »
Dear colleagues,
We are writing you on behalf of Student Science Association of Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania). We would like to invite you to participate in the international contest of robots “Robots’ Intellect 2012″. The event is being organized the second time in the Baltic States. This year contest will be held on May 3rd, 2012 in Kaunas University of Technology campus. The goal… of this competition is to motivate young people to take interest in high technology, artificial intelligence, robotics and other current topical areas of science and technology, as well as to try their personal skills and knowledge in creating their own robots.
In 2011 no one won the jackpot “The Golden Sack” filled with 9000 Euros, so it was left to grow and wait for the competitors of 2012. MINI gold back is 500 Euros. The main task remains the same as the last year: a robot must find the golden sack on the special track with obstacles and fetch it to the start line. What is more, robots will have a chance to compete in other tasks, such as line tracking, labyrinth and others.
Also, during this event, there will be robots’ exhibition, in which anyone, who has a robot, even the simplest one, can participate.
If you are interested, don’t hesitate and register for this competition.
For more information please visit our website http://www.robotsintellect.lt.
Contact us if you have any questions, it will be our pleasure to answer.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the competition “Robots’ Intelligence 2012″, May 3rd, 2012.

"Robots’ Intellect 2012″ perhaps, but what with the peoples same...;D
Starting a new thread for something like this shouldn't really be too much of a task for people building robots ;)

Even so... While it would probably be fun to visit you, come May, to sweep up the sack, I do wonder about a couple of things...

You claim "In 2011 no one won the jackpot “The Golden Sack” filled with 9000 Euros, so it was left to grow and wait for the competitors of 2012.", but the web site says it's (still) €9000, so what's with the growth??

I have to hurry to keep the fee as "low" as €55 to come get it - couldn't you just deduct it from the value of the sack??  ;D ;D

Given that the travel alone would be around €150..200 minimum, plus fare from Vilnius plus accomodation, a little food and a lot of Brain OilTM, why don't we just play it 50-50 - send me €4500 and I'll promise to stay away ;D ;D ;D
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives
