The participants are part of 24 teams from the north and eight from the south, including prior year champions such as Lac Hong University (Dong Nai), Hanoi University of Industry, Hanoi University of Transport and Sao Do University (Hai Duong).

They are the most outstanding teams of the qualifying rounds that drew the participation of 79 teams from 20 universities and colleges around the country.

The champion will represent Vietnam to attend the 2016 Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU) in Thailand this August.

Themed ‘Finding clean energy’, Robocon 2016 aims to encourage the use of renewable clean energy.

The teams must design and make two robots: an Eco Robot and a Hybrid Robot. Eco Robot, carrying a wind turbine, has to cross a slope, hill and river as well as go down the hillside, relying on the energy from Hybrid Robot.

After Eco Robot reaches the wind turbine station, Hybrid Robot has to obtain the wind propeller from Eco Robot and then mount it in a wind engine atop the wind turbine tower.

The annual Vietnam Robot Competition is sponsored by Toyota Vietnam and Vietnam Television.
