University of Michigan Students Win International Robotics Challenge

A team of Michigan University students have won the Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge and have received a research grant worth $750,000. The contest was jointly sponsored by the Australian and U.S. Departments of Defense and the final round of the competition was conducted in Australia over the previous week.

The challenge was to develop automatic robots that can interact with each other with minimum human interference. The robots are then allowed to contend in a competition in which they need to identify and defuse fake bombs without inflicting any harm to artificially created inhabitants on a showground measuring 500 m.

It was reported that 20 student teams were from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Michigan University.
