NI Arc Large Coreblock

Showcase your robotics capabilities by building an autonomous robot and compete against teams from top universities across Australia and New Zealand in our annual Live Autonomous Robotics Competition.


     Key robotics application focus areas for the 2014 competition will be:

     > Obstacle avoidance

     > Object handling 

     > Navigation


This year's competition task will focus on Agriculture, an important industry across Oceania and a key growth industry for robotics applications. Themed 'Go, Sow, Grow!' team robots will ultimately need to wirelessly communicate with a device, collect seeds, navigate to a farming area littered with obstacles, deposit the collected seeds in designated planting areas then navigate back to the home zone to complete the competition task.
