Competitions

November 30 - December 2, 2018

Robotex International hosts robotics competitions throughout the three-day festival with challenges available for people across all technical levels and ages.

The total prize money of the competitions is about 100 000€!

We have prepared our competitions in a progressive way, where everyone can continue developing their skillbase! This means that people with no prior experience can compete with their first robots, while experts are pushed to build more innovative solutions.

Whereas many of our challenges are exclusive to Robotex network, it is also important to note that we have left room for all the popular competitions based on international standards, e.g. sumo, line following and entrepreneurial challenge. This means that it is even recommended to join Robotex International with robots used at other global competitions.

The competitions take place at Estonian Fair Centre (Messikeskus), Pirita tee 28, Tallinn.
