Sumobot Competition is a student mini project under subject MEM665 Robotics and Automation at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering UiTM. Students divided into groups where each group is required to learn and design programming using Sumobot kit. Finalist from 4 classes will compete in this student project competition. Congratulation to all winners and participants. We had a great time and thank you to all staffs and IMechE UiTM Student Chapter for organizing the event. This is a good activity to create awareness and introduce robotics programming skills to the students.
