ABB Australia and the Society of Automotive Engineers Australasia (SAE-A) have launched a National Robotics Innovation Competition, in which students will team up with employers to design and develop an application of a robot in a work cell or process in an industrial application.
Students will be given an opportunity to present their proposal to a board of directors made up of a committee of experts in the field. The proposals will be evaluated on savings generated, innovation, safety, likelihood of success and presentation quality.
The winner of the competition will have their idea simulated in Robot Studio, making their proposal one step closer to reality.
Other prizes include ABB Simulation software, ABB work experience in the robotics division, robotics programming training courses.
