Robotics Competition

IEEE Region 5 Student Robotics Competition

The Student Robotics Competition is sponsored by the IEEE Region 5 Committee. The student teams will be challenged to build autonomous robots within the competition rules and guidelines.  The competition will use a point system with the winning team receiving the highest number of points.  Details may be found in the official competition rules.

Eligibility: The IEEE Region 5 Student Robotics Competition invites the IEEE Student Branches, Eta Kappa Nu, and students at universities throughout IEEE Region 5 to send, undergraduate teams to compete in the competition.  The students must register for the IEEE Region 5 Student Conference and at least one student must be a current or pending IEEE or IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu member.  Team substitutions are at the discretion of the competition chair.

Space is limited so that competition registration will close when the available space for thirty (30) teams is filled. The first team to register from each university will have priority unless otherwise designated by the branch counselor. Additional teams from the same university will be allowed as space permits.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Each team is responsible for taking all precautions necessary to protect the floor, tables and chairs in the hotel ballroom.  Each team should bring a mat or other substantial protection to avoid damage from soldering to the floor, tables and chairs in the hotel ballroom.  Any team found to have damaged the floor, tables and chairs in the hotel ballroom will be disqualified and may be held liable for the damages.
