We just came back from FIRA RoboWorld Cup 2018 which was held in Taichung, Taiwan, August 6-12. We competed with both large (adult size) and small (kid size) robots led by Prof. John Anderson and Post-Doctoral Fellow Dr. Meng Cheng Lau with the four Computer Science Undergraduate Students who went to the competition, adult size: Mario Mendez Diaz and Li Buroi, kid size: Christian Melendez and Louis O’Connor. Other members who contributed and remained at the lab were CS PhD candidate Amirhossein Hosseinmemar,  ECE M. Sc. student. Ziang (Daniel) Wang, and Undergraduate CS Students Chi Fung (Andy) Lun, Kurt Palo, and Bo Chen.


We placed just out of trophy range - fourth overall -  in both leagues,  by winning five awards in a range of events.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work, and to the Department of Computer Science, the Faculty of Science, and the University of Manitoba for their support, both travel and otherwise.

We look forward to further improved results for next year's HuroCup!
