DTU not only had the most teams entering the National Finals but also consistently gained “Green Planet” points, overwhelming some very strong competitors in the region. At the end, four DTU Robocon teams were honored to enter the National Finals of the 2013 Vietnam Robocon contest, taking place from May 6th to 12th.

On the afternoon of April 6th, the atmosphere at the Tien Son Sports and Entertainment Complex became more intense as the finals of the 2013 Regional Final Robocon Competition and the closing ceremony approached.

The twelve teams in the Regional Finals showed their strength over the two days of competition. Their reach for victory inspired all the spectators. Competitors tried their best to handle the robots skillfully in order to win as many “GREEN PLANET” points as possible.  

With their very fast robots, the DTU Robocon teams won the hearts of the judges, with resounding victories. After overwhelming strong competitors from the University of Command Information, the Danang Polytechnic University, the Dak Lak Vocational Training College, and Dong A University, four DTU Robocon teams moved to the National Finals of the 2013 Vietnam Robocon contest. They were the DTU- POLLUX, DTU-WARRIOR, DTU- LION and DTU-TITAN teams. The other two teams entering the National Finals were BKD-PTC and BK-VS from the Danang Polytechnic University.

Mr. Dang Ngoc Sy, Acting Director of the DTU Center for Electricity and Electronics (CEE), in charge of DTU Robocon, said excitedly: “I am so delighted with the early achievements of the DTU Robocon teams. Their success is due to ambition, hard work and their passion for scientific research. They have confirmed their talent and excellent team-work during the competition. The DTU Robocon teams gained the most “GREEN PLANET “ points. This demonstrated that they have made significant progress in construction and tactics. Last year, only one DTU team entered the National Finals, while this year we have four. We deserve to move to even greater heights and build upon our experience so far”. 

After accepting a bouquet of flowers from the organizers, Nguyen Minh Tri, a member of DTU-TITAN team, happily said: “Although this was the first time I have participated in the Robocon Contest, I felt calm and self-confident controlling our robots. It is this competitive confidence and solidarity that inspires us to continue winning. The DTU-TITAN robots have proved to be fast and reliable. We will try our best to exploit these advantages to win a decisive victory in the Final Round”.

One of the 2013 Robocon judges, Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Tang Cuong commented:”Using the “Green Planet” theme for the 2013 Robocon Competition, the organizers planned to create an arena where students could demonstrate their talent and creativity to protect our environment. The quality of most participants has improved remarkably, especially their competitiveness and team spirit. However, they do need to upgrade their robots to save time whenever the Robots handle “buds” or shoot into the Moon. By doing this, they will win the “GREEN PLANET” points much easier”.

The four DTU teams are eager to enter the National Finals of the 2013 Vietnam Robocon contest, which will take place from May 6th to 12th at the Tien Son Sports and Entertainment Complex in Danang.
