RoboSprint Pakistan works on the same rule as that of the Robo Cup, but with a little change, instead of 6 robots in one time there will be two robots in a single team which they bear to control through some manual device . This year’s theme is “Robots playing soccer”. The main idea is, robots will play soccer using provided data, nets and balls and then by some strategy they have to defeat their opponent. The aim of this event is to promote “Passion for Robots” at undergraduate level .
By seeing the enthusiasm of attendees they offered a training workshop and also asked for KICS assistance in their goal of motivating and urging students of UET.
