New system for robot qualifiers in Al-Dakhiliyah Governorate

Muscat: The robot qualifiers for the National Olympiad for Student Scientific Innovations and robotics and artificial intelligence competitions for this year were launched today at the Entertainment Centre in the Wilayat of Manah in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, with the participation of 174 teams from various schools in the governorate.

Oman News Agency said: “The competition will be held this year with a new system that requires the participating team to install the robot and programme it to perform some tasks on the circuit prepared for the competition, most notably: pushing the boxes distributed on the circuit floor according to a certain pattern, and points are calculated based on criteria related to the correct performance of the tasks and the time of their implementation.”

“Students compete in three different challenges, with laws similar to the idea, where fifth and sixth graders are allowed to use joysticks or control smart devices, and three teams will qualify to represent the governorate in the final competitions at the level of the Sultanate of Oman next December.”
