Wednesday 26/4: sumo robot competition Leuven @ Machinezaal

(Wednesday 3/5: sumo robot competition Gent) 

We kindly ask you to register for each session separately. Please indicate if you can bring a laptop. The workshops are free of charge and open to non-members. The common aim of the majority of the workshops is creating a robot for the Sumo competition in the last session. Every workshop proposes a standard solution concerning the topic of the evening, although bringing your own hardware and using your own ideas is strongly encouraged! 

The planning is subject to change, hence look for our notifications on this website/facebook page.
