60 teams from 40 secondary schools competed in the very first Singapore Underwater Robotic Olympiad yesterday at the Sports Complex swimming pool of Republic Polytechnic. The goal of each team was to design the best underwater robot. In addition to the main competition, there were water robot side shows with the intriguing titles of "Hip Hop Striders", and "Dancing Jelly Fishes". Demonstrations of sumo robots and humanoid robots were also included in the event. The winning team, pictured above, was from Bedok South Secondary School. The contest organizers hope the event will "cultivate an interest among the young to pursue research and development in underwater robotics, and bring about innovative applications such as the commercial use of robots for environmental cleaning or surveillance purposes".
