Mission Robotics

  • Members training for this type of competition focuses on being efficient programmers and robot designers
  • The competitions these members are exposed to centres around points gained by teams if their robot manages to achieve doing tasks and sub-tasks
  • Teams with the highest points gained by the end of the competition, wins
  • Often, there is a research and presentation element where teams have to research on a theme that is usually based on technology and issues pertaining to the environment and innovation
  • Teams present their findings to a small group of judges

Applied Robotics

  • Members training for this type of competition focuses on being able to design and program robots that are able to address or overcome problems and issues pertaining a specific area in life and human endeavor.
  • Robots are supposed to be more creative
  • Teams are supposed to either present to a group of judges or the general audience and public or a combination of both.
