(MENAFN Press) The annual Robotics Competition of the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) will this year be staged at the Robot Technology Exhibition (RTEX), coming to Dubai for the very first time

MENA region's first Robot Technology Exhibition (RTEX) will be showcasing latest innovations in this rapidly evolving field. Bringing knowledge and expertise from around the globe to a single platform, RTEX promises to provide exhibitors and visitors with a unique experience of the latest developments in the science and mechanics of robot technology

UOWD launched its Robotics Competition in 2010, and last year's event attracted 80 teams from across the region and beyond, including competitors from India.

The association between the competition and RTEX was cemented with the signing of an MoU between UOWD President, Professor Trevor Spedding, and Mr Jalal Jassbi, Managing Director of Palladium, organisers of RTEX

Also present at the MoU signing were Dean and Associate Dean (Research) of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences, Professor Mohamed Salem and Dr Farhad Oroumchian, and Palladium's Operations Manager, Golnaz van Huyssteen

The UOWD Robotics Contest was launched to promote science and engineering mong school students by giving them a chance to be creative, work in teams, and learn to implement their ideas using robotic kits. The competition also provides a platform for meeting other students from other cultures and school systems in the context of a friendly competition environment


This year's contest will span across the two RTEX events planned for 2014. On 12 May, the school-level competition will take place as part of the RTEX Exhibition launch at The Meydan, Dubai. The challenge will be structured in three levels “ primary school, middle school and high school “ as well as an open category for creative robotic ideas. Participants will have the opportunity to win scholarships to join UOWD after high school

Later in the year, a university-level competition will take place as part of the three-day RTEX Exhibition, to be held from 28 to 30 September at The Meydan.

Golnaz van Huyssteen said, "With the tremendous growth that is anticipated, we believe that our younger generation will be the carriers of this fascinating technology. This is why, when we decided to organise the first Robot Technology Exhibition in the MENA region, we decided that a Robotic Competition should be a vital component of the event."
