Description of the skill category

The robotics is one application area of electronics. The robotics is a fast-developing sector of the future with many promises. The robotics is already an important part of the industry and many other fields. Applications of the robotics are widely used by the manufacturing industry, agriculture, traffic, mines and health care. The robotics has also separate application areas: security sector, armed forces and aerospace. Robots will go there where a human cannot be sent. Robots will save people from rubble and travel to other planets.

A robot is an electronic system with a microprocessor which controls electronics to communicate with environment. A robot is capable of sensing its environment with different sensors and moving by means of actuating devices. The behaviour of the robot is determined by the programming, embedded in the robot. The microprocessor follows commands from its program memory in all actioning. These commands are called a program code.

The competition is individual.
