1997 Australian Robotics Championships

The ACS Robotics SIG and the University of Queensland are proud to bring you another Australian Robotics Championships.

The championships were held at the University of Queensland on November 29th, 1997.

The venue was the Hawken building (building 50 on the UQ map), and events kicked off at 1.30pm.

This year a trophy was awarded to the winner and runner-up for each competition, and certificates available for all entrants. See below for the lists of entrants for each competition.

In the next few days we will be publishing information about this year's championships, including stats for each entrant, summaries of the events, photos and (hopefully) even some movies of the highlights. Stay tuned!
