Vietnam Robot Contest

Vietnam student robot contest begins

The Vietnam Robot Contest 2007 opened Monday with over 400 teams with the winner to represent the country at the upcoming Asia Pacific region contest.

Regional preliminary competitions will be held for 250 teams in the north, 130 in the south, and 50 in the central region, with the final round slated for Hanoi next June.

Vietnam is set to host the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union’s (ABU) Robot Contest this year. Also scheduled to be held in Hanoi, in August, the event will be themed Halong Bay Discovery.

Last year the Ho Chi Minh City-based Polytechnic University’s BKPro team won the ABU Robocon in Malaysia.

Vietnam had also won the first ABU Robocon held in 2002 in Tokyo and repeated the feat two years later in the Republic of Korea.
