30 Jan INTERNATIONAL ZERO ROBOTICS 3RD PLACE & COMPETITOR AWARD!
TEECS High school students Srikar, Tejaswini, Neel and Ujjayi has participated as team ROBOMIA in Zero Robotics High school competition. And their program was tested at International Space Center during the finals at MIT. Our alliance team was from Romania and we (Milk and Cereal) worked together for the finals. During the finals there were only 18 teams from USA out of 42 teams all over the world.
They become third place and got competitor award. Congratulations to the team!
The competition was held at International Space Station & MIT Campus on Jan 28th 2019.
Zero Robotics is a robotics programming competition where the robots are SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites) inside the International Space Station. High School participants got to see the SPHERES operate in space via a live feed from the ISS while NASA astronauts provide real-time commentary.
The competition is called ECO SPHERES. The goal is to program a Sphere to traverse a debris field in search of a “damaged” sphere randomly placed on the playing field. When it finds the damaged sphere, it must hook onto it and drag it to safety. The ECO-SPHERES design includes a hook for the SPHERES to use to tow any type of cargo. Approximately 200 teams from all over the world joined the competition.
