Aims and Scope
Goals and aims of the Baltic Robot SUMO
- Promotion of engineering and scientific thinking in the involved countries and organizations;
- Promotion of technical creativity as a key to success;
- Positioning robotics as an instrument to transfer and expand knowledge of different fields of modern science;
- Attraction of students and pupils to the engineering thereby supporting universities and industry that are in constant lack of young and creative people;
- Creation, maintenance and expansion of beneficial learning and communication environment among involved teams, people and organizations;
- Advancement of the existing teams to rise their competitiveness in international context.
The idea is to invite all of the countries around the Baltic Sea to organize and to participate in the open Baltic Robot SUMO CUP series. Obviously, the participants are not limited to the Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The CUP is based on and is strictly followed by the international rules of the robot SUMO.
- The cup itself is a traveling award that clearly indicates the achievements of the awarded people or team. If the awarded people or team cannot defend its title on the next competition, then the cup travels from the ex-winner to the current winner of the competition.
- The CUP is open. It means that everyone is kindly invited to participate. The only requirement is will and ability to build a robot that is fully compliant with robot SUMO regulations.
- The CUP as a process takes a place once in a year on clearly defined and well known dates. The dates are agreed among the members of the organization committee and are not changed without sound circumstances.
