This website is the official site of the Robotics Club of University of Patras!
Robotics Club participated in Robot Challenge 2016 that took place in Vienna, Austria.
Our two line following robots participated in Line Following and Line Following Enhanced categories and made it to the finals of the first one.
Robot Challenge is the most popular and challenging competition with participants from all over the world.
Robotics Club won first place in the category Enchanced Line Following of Robotex 2015 international compeition. Our robot "Dromeas 2S" was the only robot that managed to overcome the obstacles of the track!
Robotex is an inernational competition with 17 categories that takes place in Tallinn, Esthonia for the last 15 years. This year, 1400 contestant from more than 15 countries participated with 650 robots, breaking the record by being the biggest robot competition in Europe.
"Dromeas 2S" also finished at the 6th place of the Line Following competition, among 100 competitors. See here the official results.
Robotics Club participated in Patras IQ 2 (24-26 April 2015), an expo for mature research results. The purpose of the exhibition was the development and strengthening of cooperation within the research community and the productive sector.
Our Club presented its latest robots and discussed with the visitors about the technology used for the development of the robots and the perspectives in their application.

"The technologies of robotics and 3D printing continue to converge. While in essence, a 3D printer is a robot itself, it’s the robots that are able to be fabricated via 3D printing which are becoming the real story. We have covered numerous stories of both professional and amateur robotic creations that have utilized 3D printing to a large extent. The number of applications within the robotics space for 3D printing will only continue to expand as both technologies advance..."
