Team M41+ shared their experiences with us from Eurobot competition

This years’ competition Eurobot Serbia 2017 was organized in Novi Sad on April 29th.Teams from the Faculty of Technical sciences, M41+, Memistor and MSM-RV had won first three places and guaranteed their participation in the final round of Eurobot competition held in France.Team M41+ which counts 14 members, won the second place. Team members Aleksa, Milos and Mihailo shared their experiences with us:

1.How did you hear about Eurobot competition?
Students from Department of Mechatronics have to build a robot for this competition’s national round. It’s a part of an exam, so the part of our team had to participate in it.

2.What motivated you to apply?
Like we said, senior students of mechatronics have to compete. In 2016 they were very successful so they decided to continue competing and welcome younger students to the team. We wanted make something from the knowledge we got from our faculty.

3.What were your expectations?
We had pretty high expectations for the national round because some of our team members have been competing since high school, but for the final round we wanted to share our experiences with other teams from Europe and test our skills.

4.What was your task?
We had to make two autonomic robots which had to score more points on the desk 2x3m than the other teams’ robots. Topics and rules are different each year.


5.Do you consider that you had knowledge as equal as your competitors?
Knowledge that we got from the faculty is equal but what makes difference is our strong team spirit and love towards robotics.

6.Was the knowledge you got from the faculty enough to complete this task?
That is just the basic of we need for the good result. If you want to succeed you have to learn constantly and upgrade your skills.

7.Did this competition offer you new opportunities?
Of course it did. We met a lot of new people and it’s a great thing to put in CV.

8.Would you recommend others to apply?
Absolutely. It was an interesting experience which is good for you and your career.

9.Did you make any new friendships?
Except the friendship we have inside our team, we met a lot number of students from Europe with whom we keep in touch with.

We hope that the experience of team M41+ motivated you to apply for Eurobot competition.


EUROBOT – International competition in robotics

EUROBOT is an international youth competition (predominantly students) in the field of robotics that is held every year in another country. The first competition was held in 1994 with nine teams from four countries, while last year around 50 teams from 30 countries gathered. Only three teams from each country can take part in the competition.

The competition takes place by creating a robot with completely new features every year. The EUROBOT Judicial Committee in September formulated a task for which team resolution should be realized next year by robots. The realization of such devices is a very serious and complex task, so students make a great effort to bring them to the competitive level.

This year’s EUROBOT Serbia 2017 competition took place in Novi Sad on April 9th. Teams from the Faculty of Technical Sciences, MSM-RV, M41 + and Memristor, won the first three places and placed in the final EUROBOT 2017 competition in France. Team M41 + won second place, Memristor sixth and MSM-RV tenth place. At the Eurobot competition, representatives of Serbia participated 16 times and have always had a remarkable success, making the Republic of Serbia one of the most successful countries.

You can hear more details about this at a workshop that will be held on October 13, 2017. at the Center for Innovative Entrepreneurship of Youth at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering in Niš. Microsoft representatives will explain to you more closely how this works, to discover the topic of EUROBOT 2018 and in an interesting and creative way with you to go through all the steps necessary for success!

The general promotion of the conference will be held on 09th October, 12:00h at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering.
