Robocon 2002

Sid-Scorpion-4 was the first Robot built for participating in an international competition, the ABU Robocon 2002, Tokyo Japan .This robot was so compact that it could expand to 8m*8m area from 1.5m*1.5m its initial area. As per the criteria provided by ABU, the Sid Scorpion 4 was constructed to compete for the slogan “Reach for the top of Mount Fuji”.

Nepal didn’t have much experience in robotics then. We defeated Fiji in the first round and Kazakhstan in the next round. We were only South Asian country to reach quarter final, we had to compete with China and unfortunately we were defeated. However, our technology was appreciated.

Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam was the winner of this year contest.
