Abu Dhabi, April 30 (IANS/WAM) Over 2,000 students from 40 countries will take part in an international robot olympiad to be held here in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2011.
The students will be required to identify robot hardware, according to specific mechanisms and functions and to programme robots through voices and movements that would be received by the robots through sensors, Mugheer Khamis Al-Khaili, ADEC director general said Thursday.
The robot olympiad would promote creativity and competition for students of all levels, he said.
The competition will have two categories - regular and open. The regular category requires participants to solve basic problems within a set time period, while the open category will require students to assemble robots under a certain theme.
The 2010 edition of the world robot olympiad will be held in Manila in November.
