May 30th – June 2nd La Roche-sur-Yon, France
EUROBOT 2019 is being held in La Roche-sur-Yon, in France, from May 30 to June 2, 2019. The event is an annual competition taking place in Europe since 1998 and it consists of robot competitions which are completely designed and built by university students from all over the world.
Teoresi has always supported young talents education and culture dissemination and, for this reason, has chosen to be sponsor of the UniCT-Team of the University of Catania, the only Italian team taking part in the competition.
The delegation includes Computer Science and Computer Engineering students and carries out its design, manufacturing and testing activities in the laboratory of Autonomous Systems of the Maths and Computer Science department and it is coordinated by Prof. Corrado Santoro.
This year, the team has been called to realize two robots, one of them is fully autonomous.
The University of Catania has been taking part in the initiative since 1998 and the team has always distinguished itself within the first 15 positions (among 70 teams) and ranking 2nd in 2009 and 2011.
