The 15th iteration of the Robocon was the most successful one for Nepal till date. Nepal got historical success and shone with unprecedented achievements in this year’s Robocon, challenging the likes of countries like China.
Themed Robominton, the robots of each country had to battle each other in a full scale match of badminton, the national sport of the hosting country. Nepal was drawn into the group containing the tech giant China, which had brought the ‘dream robot’ manufactured to flawlessness and controlled to perfection, also the only automated robot in the entire contest. However, Nepal performed unyieldingly against the mighty China and though the final score was in their favour, they were forced out of the tournament due to that very match. The match performance pulled into limelight the already close-watched status of the Nepalese robots because of their appealing build and the unique as well as much-liked use of suspension mechanism. Nepal thus got the Best Idea Award and the Mabuchi motor award; two awards including a category award which was generally limited to the circle of Robocon winning countries. The achievements certainly proved that Nepal also had the potential to offer something astounding to the world platform.
