Vladivostok roboticists again prove themselves to be the strongest in the All-Russian Engineering Competition Akvarobotekh-2023

Closing and awarding of the winners and prize-winners of the All-Russian Team Engineering Olympiad (competition) for schoolchildren and students in marine robotics Akvarobotekh-2023 took place in the concert hall of the Far Eastern Marine Training Center of ANMSU.

The Admiral G.I. Nevelskoy Maritime State University acted as the operator of the Aquaroboteh-2023 Competition. The Vladivostok State University became the operator of the conference «Prospects for the development of sea-based robotic complexes (systems)» and the Winter School for schoolchildren and students. 

A member of the organizing committee, director of the scientific and innovation complex «Marine Technopark» of ANMSU Dmitry Proshchenko commented on the completed competition: «We are holding the All-Russian competition Aquarobotekh on our site for the third time and for the first time organized them at the Far Eastern Maritime Training Center (FEMTC). This year, 87 participants in 18 teams from six cities of Russia (Vladivostok, Ussuriysk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Astrakhan and Severodvinsk) came to Vladivostok. It was the most massive Aquarobotekh event in the entire history of these competitions, despite the fact that the teams were given significantly less time to prepare than usual. The main goal was to demonstrate piloting skills and team work. Unfortunately, technical problems with the ANMSU team apparatus did not allow the guys to take prizes, but this experience will also benefit them and allow them to approach the next competition in optimal shape».

The panel of judges summed up the results of the competition and announced the names of the winners and runners-up in all categories and they were presented with awards.

On December 11, as part of Aquaroboteh-2023, the All-Russian scientific and practical conference «Prospects for the development of sea-based robotic complexes (systems)» was held, which discussed issues of progress in the field of development of extreme depths, legal and moral and ethical standards for the use of robotic technologies and devices.

15 leading scientists in the sphere of robotics from the Russian Academy of Sciences and leading universities in the country introduced their research and developments to the conference participants.

On the same day, the Winter School of Robotics for schoolchildren and students was held at VVSU. Participants of the Winter School were introduced to the concept of «Internet of Things», the basics of programming on Arduino C. Using practical examples, they mastered writing simple programs (outputting text on a monitor screen, outputting text in dialog mode), connecting RGB LEDs using a breadboard. Also they studied the operation of the servo drive and motor, applied issues of radio control, assembly and programming of the remote control for controlling the model.
