Robofest Exhibition Competitions

Since a game competition with fixed rules may limit students' creativity, Robofest offers a stage for exhibitions to demonstrate their creations. The robotics exhibition is a great way for students to show off their imagination and creativity. Each team has complete freedom to create autonomous robotics projects such as robot pets, robot artists, dancing robots, storytelling with robots, robots for scientific experiments, and practical robotics applications. Teams are composed of one to seven members. In general, two students are recommended per robot. Computer controlled robots with sensors may be of any size and can use any material as long as it is safe for team members as well as spectators. Hard-wired remote control is not allowed. However, wireless host computer/robot control via software messages is allowed. Human interaction with the robots is allowed and encouraged.

Some of the best robotic exhibitions since 2002 are as follows:
