At EUROBOT contests, robots with completely new characteristics are made each year, and this year’s tasks to be performed by robots involved the building of cities.
Eurobot is the international youth contest in the field of robotics which is held in a different country each year. The first contest was held in 1994 with nine teams from four countries, whereas last year's contest gathered around 50 teams from 30 countries. Each country can participate in the contest with three teams. The best representatives are selected at national contests which then represent their own country in the international contest.
During a match, robots are completely autonomous both energetically and operationally, since they perform tasks and solve novel situations completely independently.
