SDJU Robot and Intelligent Technology Research Team Won the First Prize in China Robot Competition


The 2021 China Robot Competition i.e. Final of RoboCup China Open, which was postponed due to the epidemic, was successfully held online from June 3 to 5. After rounds of competition, the School of Electronics and Information Engineering’s robot and intelligent technology research teams, against all odds, took home first and third prizes for their projects on generic service robots and grocery shopping robots respectively.

The China Robot Competition (CRC) i.e. Robocup China Open, hosted by Chinese Association of Automation, has been successfully held for 22 times since 1999. It is a top-level national discipline competition. As China’s most influential, most comprehensive robotic technology competition, academic conference and science event, and also one of five the RoboCup Federation recognized international zonal competitions, , CRC is included in 2015-2021 National University Subject Competition List  of China Association of Higher Education.

Team members started their preparation from the summer of 2021 for this competition. They formulated solutions, built hardware and software platforms, and developed recognition algorithms. In March this year, even during the campus lockdown due to the pandemic, they borrowed chairs, classrooms and offices to simulate and improve their projects, made full use of online and offline communication, and overcame obstacles such as lack of equipment and materials. It was their insistence on preparation, continuous optimization and improvement that made them finally achieve excellence.

This competition not only highlights the tenacious, innovative and hard-working spirit of SDJU students, but also embodies the achievements of the School of Electronics and Information Engineering in academic competition, higher education, and scientific research.
