RoboCup Junior Australia 2012 Championships

On September 22/23, we held the Australian Championships for RoboCUp Junior.  This year we saw over 140 teams and over 400 kids from all over Australia come to Canberra to show off their creations.  I am constantly amazed at the ability of these students and what they are able to create.  We make it a point to interview every team to make sure that the work is substantially their own (not some well meaning but overhelpful teacher or parent).  I spoke to quite a few teams, who despite being in grade 10,11 or 12, knew more than I did after my first year of my Engineering Degree!

Here are a few videos that others took of the event:

Thanks for posting this, Damien! Could you please share details about what material was used for plates in line follower competitions?

Hi Alex, The mat itself if a type of thin vinyl. We then take each tile and mount it on standard MDF board. Some people use 9mm thick, other use 12mm thick. The thicker each board is, the less susceptible to warping but the heavier it is!
