Robotic Competitions

May 13, 2014

Robotic competitions help to educate the next generation of robotics engineers. There are ways to get involved in robotic competitions across the globe in which you can win money or prizes. These types of competitions have helped introduce robotics to new industries and people around the world.


Every year, peo­ple from all over the world com­pete in many dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pe­ti­tions as a way to not only win mon­ey or prizes, but also to fur­ther the study of robot­ics. These com­pe­ti­tions have intro­duced robot­ics to sev­er­al new indus­tries, includ­ing the domes­tic and ser­vice indus­tries – areas where robots only exist­ed in sci­ence fiction.

Many of these robot com­pe­ti­tions are held for mid­dle school, high school and col­lege stu­dents. One of the larg­er com­pe­ti­tions, the FIRST (For Inspi­ra­tion and Recog­ni­tion of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy) Robot­ics Com­pe­ti­tion, has been around since 1992, and as the name states, it chal­lenges high school stu­dents world­wide to learn about robot­ics and cel­e­brate it, while also build­ing a robot that will com­pete on the grand stage.

That real­ly is what many robot­ics com­pe­ti­tions are about – edu­ca­tion and get­ting the next gen­er­a­tion involved in robot­ics. Indus­tri­al robot­ics, as well as domes­tic and ser­vice robot­ics, are becom­ing more and more pop­u­lar in soci­ety, and by com­pet­ing in these com­pe­ti­tions and get­ting excit­ed about robot­ics, com­peti­tors may decide to go into the field of robot­ics. That means that stu­dents would be pre­pared for the future, and have expe­ri­ence build­ing robots before ever set­ting foot on a col­lege cam­pus – which is anoth­er rea­son that the expe­ri­ence of com­pet­ing in robot­ic chal­lenges is some important.

All in all, when stu­dents learn about robot­ics, they are learn­ing about the future, and they are help­ing to build tech­nol­o­gy one robot at a time.

Some of those stu­dents may go on to col­lege and become robot­ics tech­ni­cians or engi­neers, and then start work­ing for robot­ics inte­gra­tors like Robots​.com. Robots​.com pro­vides automa­tion solu­tions from sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pa­nies, includ­ing Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB. Our staff of engi­neers and tech­ni­cians will work with you to help you build the per­fect indus­tri­al robot for your facility.
