The 2017 China RoboWork Competition & International Open, an annual engineering event, was recently held at the China University of Mining and Technology’s Wenchang Campus.
SDU’s twenty three teams performed their best during the three-day competition. The highest prize was claimed by three undergraduates from the School of Control Science and Engineering—Xu He, Meng Zhaoteng, and Mi Nan—for their entry of a mobile robot with narrow feet.
The China RoboWork Competition & International Open is composed of standard sectors like conveyance, speed, walking robots and the alike. There are 20 smaller sectors in total, including conveyance robotics, biomedical robotics, indoor aerial robotics, IoT robotics innovation and humanoid boxing robotics. SDU competitors were involved in 6 of them, and won another 22 prizes: 18 first prizes for humanoid robot obstacle avoidance, slope climbing robot, and dynamic legging; 2 second prizes in Thanatar Class Robots; and 2 third prizes in speeding dynamic legged robots.
SDU has achieved a new premium standard in its preparation for this event. A campus match, co-organized by the Innovation and Entrepreneurship College, the Undergraduate College, and the Engineering Training Center, was held before the final. The selected teams received training from the school’s “AI and Robotics” innovative education center.
The participants are from the School of Information Science and Engineering, the School of Mechanical Engineering, the School of Control Science and Engineering, the School of Electrical Engineering, and other related schools.
