From 2nd  to 4th of  December 2016  the Europe’s largest  international robotics technology competition 'Robotex 2016' took place in  Tallinn (Estonia) .  PskovSU computer science and electric power engineering faculty students for the first time took part  in this great contest.
The competition has been  held at Tallinn University of Technology since 2001,  and the event  usually gathers  robotics enthusiasts of all ages and from all over the world.  Pskov State University was presented by a team of students of the faculty of computer science and electric power engineering. Sergei Loginov and Sergey Traschenkov  were  the team coaches. The students participated in the  tournament of self-made robots in the "mini-sumo" category. The task was to detect the opponent and push them off the field.

Besides the competition, the  participants were shown educational and research laboratories of  Energy faculty of  Tallinn University of Technology.
Unfortunately, our team could not take prize-winning places, but when getting ready  for the competition our students got a lot of practical experience in the development of their own mechatronic devices.
