Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a group company of the leading semiconductor production equipment manufacturer TEL, has been sponsoring the TEL Robot Combat with the purpose of identifying promising engineering talents. For the 2017 games, TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan held preparatory briefings at a number of university campuses across Taiwan beginning in September 2017, attracting entries from over 30 universities. The participants consisted of students of science and engineering departments, including those majoring in machine engineering, electric machine engineering, electronic engineering, chemical engineering, materials engineering, and science engineering. After a month of intense regional competitions, 18 teams made it to the finals held on November 25 at Penglai B6 Warehouse in the Pier 2 Art Center in Kaohsiung.
The final tournament featured exciting combats as well as some entertaining competition categories. In the team spirit award category, for example, the teams competed to shout their team slogans louder than the others. In the assembly speed award category, the teams competed to take apart and reassemble their robots as fast as they could. And in the decoration award category, the students dressed their robots in a creative manner, competing for aesthetic superiority. As prize money was offered to category winners, competition was very intense as well as uniquely entertaining.
In the combat category, Team “Very Excited” (很有興機) from National Chung Hsing University won the top prize, followed by Team “Eric Believer” (Eric信徒) from National Taiwan University and Team “Burning Legion” (燃燒軍團) from Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology. The team spirit award was won by Team “Rocker in Infinite Hand Strength” (搖桿在手力量無窮) from National Taipei University of Technology, the assembly speed award by Team “Eric Believer” (Eric信徒) from National Taiwan University, and the decoration award by Team “Oh! Xiaoxin Is Here” (Oh！小信來了) from National Cheng Kung University.
The participants’ mastery of robotics and high levels of creativity impressed the referees and other officials of the event. TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan hopes that the practical experience gained through this competition will deepen the students’ knowledge and interest in technology and machinery, making them a leading force in the high-tech industry in the future.
