Robot equipped with SICK sensors wins Belgian Robotics Championship 2012

The Belgian Robotics Championship, organized by the PASS, is a compelling competition where autonomous robots, designed by engineers and university students, compete against each other. The goal of the competition is to build, as a team, a robot that can move on a playing field to carry out the requested commands as well as possible. The 3 best teams will represent Belgium at the international Eurobot final. Robots equipped with SICK sensors ranked 1st and 2nd in the Belgian Robotics Championship for students.

In previous years, the robots had to play a rugby match, bowl, sort trash, collect samples on Mars, build ancient temples, feed the planet and play a game of chess. This year, the robots had to hunt treasures on an island full of obstacles.

The final took place on Sunday the 15th of April 2012, after an exciting and fair competition. 21 teams of young students competed for the title of Belgian champion. Over 700 people came to encourage them.

The Plastivore team with a clever robot equipped with SICK sensors took the Belgian title for the 2nd year in a row. The CMOS team earned a well-deserved second place, also with a robot equipped with SICK sensors.
