Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a group company of the leading semiconductor production equipment manufacturer TEL, has been sponsoring the TEL Robot Combat since 2016 with the purpose of identifying promising engineering talents. As the competition enters its second year, TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan held preparatory briefings at a number of university campuses across Taiwan beginning in September 2017, attracting wide attention.
Preliminaries for the Robot Combat are held in three districts (North, Central, and South), and surviving teams compete in the finals. At the Central District preliminary held on Saturday, November 18 at the basketball court in B1 of the National Chung Hsing University gymnasium in Taichung, 61 teams from 21 universities in the district competed against each other. The participants consisted of students of science and engineering departments, including those majoring in machine engineering, mechanical design, mechanical and computer-aided engineering, photoelectronic engineering, aviation and electronic engineering, materials science and engineering, information engineering, automatic control engineering, electronics, and electric machine engineering. The participants’ backgrounds varied: some took interest in robotics inspired by U.S. movie Real Steel, and there were also veteran “bonus hunters” who had been building robots since their childhood in order to win prizes in competitions. These and many other entrants all competed seriously to win.
In the preliminary competition, the teams are first tasked to assemble and complete a robot within one hour. A referee determines winning teams, who are qualified to move on to the next competition held in the afternoon. The next round consists of a series of 3-minute one-on-one battles. After a fierce competition, the following six teams made it to the finals: Group A: Team “Aragaki Yui Is My Bride” from National Taiwan Ocean University, Chung Hua University, and National United University; Group B: Team “How to Basic” from National Taichung University of Science and Technology; Group C: Team “Puli Springs” (埔里山泉水) from National Chi Nan University; Group D: Team “Very Excited” (很有興機) from National Chung Hsing University; Group E: Team “Erudite Scholars Come in Good Spirits to Talk With Me” (談笑有鴻儒) from National Chung Cheng University; and Group F: Team “Oh! Xiaoxin Is Here” (Oh！小信來了) from National Cheng Kung University.
The six finalists from the Central District will compete with 12 finalists from the North and South Districts on November 25 at Penglai B6 Warehouse in the Pier 2 Art Center in Kaohsiung.
