The April 2005 edition of the Robot Competition FAQ has been posted. There are quite a few new competitions and about the same number of competitions that were dropped for inactivity. Interestingly almost all the new ones were for autonomous robots and almost all the discontinued competitions for the last couple of months have been remote-controlled vehicle battles. Could the robot-wars fad finally be dying down? Whatever the cause it's nice to see so many new autonomous robot contests being added to the list.
