The competition attracted keen interest from across a wide spectrum, both in Singapore and overseas. Twenty-eight teams comprising more than 170 individuals from five countries registered. The participants come from academic institutes, robotics enthusiasts, and the private sector. Six teams made it to the Finals of the inaugural TechX Challenge. The robot that completes all the stipulated tasks mostly quickly and within an hour will win the TechX Challenge Trophy and S$1 million.
Don't miss the ultimate race!
A display of robotics will be held in conjunction with the TechX Challenge finals. At the Robotics Showcase, visitors will be treated to robotics demonstrations and hands-on operations, apart from static displays.
Robots which are used for dangerous missions such as explosive ordnance disposal are on display, together with robotics applications developed in Singapore. Visitors can witness 'live' demonstrations of robotic capabilities and have opportunity to operate an SAF robot. Also on show are educational and interactive robots.
