At the festival Avrora Robotics presented the «Junior 2.0» robot car, the «Agrobot» project layout and the «Wombat» platform, demonstrating the «follow me» scenario, which delighted all the people around him. The presented projects were actively interested in both children and adults, asking various questions about the functional design.
«RoboFest» is the largest in Europe and one of the largest festivals in the world, annually gathering the best participants of scientific and technical creativity at the age from 6 to 30 years who present their unique developments. The idea of its holding was born to Oleg Deripaska in 2007 when he visited the North American world robots competition FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
In Russia at that time there was no single program to support robotics and engineering specialties. At the same time, our country has always been famous for its physicists, mathematicians, inventors, engineers. To revive the prestige of engineering professions in Russia, to instill interest in them from the school bench are the key tasks of «RoboFest».
