Question about robot contest
« on: October 08, 2007, 10:09:50 PM »
One question: does the tutorial have to be for an AUTONOMOUS robot, or can it be RC?

It can be RC if you want. A hybrid would be cool, too ;D

People from India can fully participate in the competition. Just be aware that any check I write will be in US dollars.

For now I will only ban two types of countries:
  • 3rd world nations
  • Nations deemed by the US government as supporters of terrorism



My country is a 3rd world country. Well, anyways.. if that is the rule, then  i will have to stick on it. :'(

University of the Philippines Mobile robotic Lab is in Diliman Quezon City , a 30 minute Drive from Manila...

We are primarily sponsored by Zilog Philippines , basically most of the MCUs are Zilog ...

I guess his country is 2nd world nations :) if they have a robotics Lab at the university!

Nah it's just Im afraid of breaking some strange tax law (in both the US and your country), or being accused of something lame like 'financially supporting terrorists' or something. I honestly just don't know the laws which is the biggest problem, but if you want to look into it Ill read your findings . . . You can enter the contest, I just can't promise Ill be able to send you money/prizes if you win.
