Zwei Wettbewerbe

Since the start of the ROBORACE at the end of October, teams of up to six people have been working hard at building and programming a Lego robot. Its task is to complete a route marked out by a black line as quickly as possible while balancing a ball on a seesaw.

Which team has developed the best robot is decided by two final tasks which spectators are also very welcome to attend. In the ROBORACE preliminary rounds, held from 2 pm on Friday November 22, 2019, groups of university and high-school students will compete against one another for a place in the final. This begins on Friday 29 November 2019 at 4 pm. The competition takes place in Lecture Hall 57.01 at Pfaffenwaldring 57 on the Campus Vaihingen at the University of Stuttgart.
