Robot Race 2013

Our 2nd Annual Robot Race concluded with an exciting few final days racing and our winners being awarded trophies by our sponsors Morgan Stanley. The races are the culmination of our CS Undergraduate Module Robotics Programming, in which students learn to program a robot and move it successfully around a course.

The students had not seen the track layout until the morning of the race, at which point they had to battle the clocks to program their robots to understand the twists and turns of the course. See here & here for videos of our races. 

Congratulations to the winners:

1st place Alexander Emms & Ivan Nikolic

2nd place Nicola Greco & Andrew Greatorex

3rd place Tuan Nguyen & Laurence Clark Michalek
