THE BRAINSTORM.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Award winning robotics team competing in Eurobot

Eurobot is an international autonomous robotics competition celebrating it’s 25th year anniversary of promoting fun, technology, creativity, education and passion. Each year the theme of the competition changes. Students, teams and societies have to design, build and program robots to score as many points as possible within a 100 second timeframe.

Several members of staff from Product Design, Design Engineering and Computer Science organise the competition and are the National Organising Committee for the UK heats. The competition hosted teams from Imperial College London, UCL, Birmingham University, Southampton University, Kings College and Aberdeen University.

INNOVATION PRIZE

In the final of Eurobot 2019 in La Roche-sur-Yon, France, where the task was to programme tabletop robots to pick up and correctly sort coloured pucks while avoiding bumping into other robots, Brainstorm impressed judges with a text-to-speech instruction system and a touchscreen interface for their devices. Artur Graczyk, Camille Croci, Chibuike Okpaluba, Muhammad Ali Hussain Javed, Szymon Klimek and Szymon Malecki faced a field of over 200 teams that generally were 10- or 15-strong, but still managed to move MDX up 12 places on its ranking last year.
