The EuroSkills Competition is currently taking place in Budapest, Hungary. This event brings together the most talented young skilled professionals from all over Europe. There are six main competition sectors; Information & Communication Technology, Construction & Building Technology, Social & Personal Services, Creative Arts & Fashion, Transportation & Building Technology, and Manufacturing & Engineering Technology. Studica is a Strategic Skill Sponsor and Supplier for Mobile Robotics. Studica representatives are at the competition to give us a closer look at what is happening.
EuroSkills Mobile Robotics Competition
Under the Manufacturing and Engineering Technology falls Mobile Robotics, a solution-orientated, quickly evolving industry within which the role of the robotics engineer is significant. Mobile robotics has applications within a diverse group of industries such as aerospace, mining, agriculture, medicine, and as you would expect, manufacturing. Studica is proud to be working with WorldSkills and EuroSkills.
“Studica has been a great asset in developing the Skill Mobile Robotics to industry standards. We are pleased to have Studica with us as a Global Industry Partner in this field, especially since technology is moving so fast,” said Alexander Amiri, Director Sponsorship and Partnership, WorldSkills International. As part of our duties, Studica is responsible for compiling and supplying the authorized WorldSkills Mobile Robotics Collection that competitors need to compete.
The “Dishwasher Robot” Project
One of the projects that competitors will be working on this year will be creating a robot that can clean up dishes in a kitchen. Robots will be placed within a kitchen scenario and will be tasked with collecting the objects on the dinner table and placing them in a dish drainer. Competitors will be given a complete description of their project and its required task, material requirements, etc. Over the course of the competition, they will need to complete modules that include Gripper Adjust & Core Tests, Test Runs, and Presentation & “Enhancement”. This serves to be a very interesting competition and we can’t wait to see what robots the competitors come up with.
