Robotics Workshop

IEEE TENCON 2021 Robot Design Competition

There are different type of robot systems already in our environment, and robots are getting essential to our daily life. The new era of robotics is witnessing the increasing release of new innovative robots with a diverse set of applications.

We are inviting students who will lead this new era as part of IEEE TENCON 2021 Robot Workshop. You can design and develop any robots, and show how it works and why people use your robots in your presentation.
