The Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) is an Asian Oceanian College robot competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. In the competition robots compete to complete a task within a set period of time. The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests who will lead their countries in the 21st century, as well as help advance engineering and broadcasting technologies in the region. The event is broadcast in many countries through ABU member broadcasters.
The main objective here is to build robots to participate in the ROBOCON INDIA competition and subsequently qualify for the international level. IIT Delhi has an exemplary track record in this competition. We won it in the year 2007 and represented INDIA in the International ROBOCON Competition. Over the years, our robots, both manual and automatic, have been highly appreciated at the competition. The Indian leg of the competition is held in the month of March every year.
