System Design Projekt 2024: Meet the robots!

Who will be the fastest robot? Who will be honoured for the best design? And who will receive the prize for innovation?

Experience the rousing atmosphere when all the teams are cheered on in Building 101 of the Faculty of Engineering and a unique atmosphere is created.

When: 14 February 2024, 10:00 to 16:00
Where: Faculty of Engineering, Georges-Köhler-Allee 101, ground floor

For those who cannot be on site, there is the possibility to follow the event via livestream:

More than 400 first-semester students from the Faculty of Engineering take part in the annual robotics competition, in which they build and programme a robot from the LEGO MINDSTORM set in interdisciplinary groups of four. The students from the Computer Science, Microsystems Engineering, Embedded Systems Engineering and Sustainable Systems Engineering degree programmes have spent a semester working with their robots and are now showing off their skills by competing against other teams.

The System Design Projekt with robot competition is organized by Alexander Richter and Till Steinmann, both PhD students at the Chair for Electrical Instrumentation and Embedded Systems.

Our special thanks go to TRUMPF Hüttinger, Bosch Sensortec and SICK, who support this event and will also be present with an exhibition stand on the day of the competition.
