Interdisciplinary robot competition


GaliPet team winner of the 2020/21 Edition (Martin Cibils, Maxime Rombach and Nils Toggwyler)

During the STI robot competition, five teams of three master students from different sections of the STI faculty have to design, build and program a cleaning robot. The realized robots must be able to autonomously move in a 64 m² arena that features obstacles and different terrains, while detecting and gathering empty PET bottles, which should then be brought to a specific recycling area. The competition is implemented as a regular semester project during the spring semester.

The project is a unique opportunity to learn and practice several skills that are often asked for by employers: hands-on expertise in several domains (electronics, mechanics, programming, etc.), project management, budget management, interacting with workshops and suppliers, working in a multidisciplinary team.

This project is part of the Discovery Learning program of EPFL and organized by the Biorobotics Laboratory (BioRob)
