VGU students won the first prize at the soccer tournament for robots, called Soccerbot 2015, which was organized by Saigon High-tech Park Incubation Center (SHTP-IC) on 17th October.
Soccerbot 2015 was an intelligent robot programming contest for students from technical universities in Ho Chi Minh City. Each team was provided with the robots to program and practice with. Those robots are able to move on scroll wheels, communicate wirelessly and compete in a 1.2m x 2.0m stadium. Each team had 3 primary robots and 1 substitute robot. Each team was required to write controlling software and set up those robots so that they would have the ability to work together, search for and identify the ball, goal and other players, and score a goal or prevent the opposing team from scoring goals.
According to the organizer, this was a technological playground for students who are fond of electronics, information technology, automation, and robotics, and to make these students known to enterprises that are seeking high quality human resources.
Initiated in May 2015 by partners UNICEF, ARM and frog, the Wearables for Good design challenge garnered 250 submissions from 46 countries across 6 continents. Among the 10 shortlisted teams consisting of innovative designers, engineers and technologists, the VGU team is honored to be selected with the idea of helping protect children from abuse and observing their health.
The chosen teams from the final selection procedure will be coached by a number of field specialists to convert their concepts into working prototypes.
