Beijing,22nd  August 2018 (BISTU)—  Closing ceremony of China Robot Competition 2018 at International Conference and Exhibition Center of Yibin of Sichuan Province witnesses outstanding performances of BISTU robot teams, i.e., Sun@Home family service robot team from School of Automation wins one gold medal, two silver medals and three bronze ones, School of Instrumentation Science and Opto-electronics Engineering team attends robot advanced optical system contest, i.e., 2D identification and 2 vs 2 martial arts performance, and wins three bronze medals. Electromechanical Experiment and Training Center, as this is their very first trip to national robot competition, competes in obstacle surmounting and rescue and 1 vs 1 martial arts performance and wins two bronze medals. 

China Robot Competition attracts over 4,000 students and faculties in 1,400 teams from 267 schools in 30 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under Central Government). The Competition is sponsored by Chinese Association of Automation and Yibin People’s Government and organized by Robot Competition Working Committee of Chinese Association of Automation and Training Department of Competition of Chinese Association of Automation. A number of competition items have been set, including basketball robot, advanced optical systems, auto-sorting robot, FIRA, FIRA simulation, service robot, robot tourism, medical robot, martial arts performance, dancing robot, engineering robot, senior-service robot, submarine robot, aerial robot, rescue robot, medium-size simulation, four-foot bionic robot, agriculture robot, etc. 

Four sections are set for family service robot competition: supermarket, general, identification of multiple people, and non-defining robots. Supervised by Prof. Zhang Qizhi and Prof. Zhou Yali, School of Automation team adopts a number of key technologies. With their dedication and devotion, finally the team achieves satisfactory results. 

School of Instrumentation Science and Opto-electronics Engineering team attends robot advanced optical system contest--- 2D identification. It targets at research and development of low-cost high-performance smart identification modules. In the contest robots needs to identify photos of various material objects, accurately measure the photos, and consider various possible conditions. Led by Liu Lishuang, the School Team adapts itself to newly revised rules and high competitiveness of other teams. Two teams, supervised by Liu Gang, finally are honored with two bronze medals. 


In their first trip to China Robot Competition, Electromechanical Experiment and Training Center team, led by Wang Nike and Zhang Zhi, chooses obstacle surmounting---the most difficult item. The team consists of mostly undergraduate students of School of Electromechanical Engineering. Some are undergraduate students from School of Information Management and School of Applied Sciences. The current car model is the result of half-year design and development. Team members complete the whole process of manufacturing and assembling manu propria. That the newly-born team finally beat a number of experienced teams owes much to team members’ coordination. Comment students of the Team.
