Win a Robot Arm! ORC Holds Robotics Arm Contest | Ottawa Robotics Competition

Win a Robot Arm! ORC Holds Robotics Arm Contest

As part of the IEEE Ottawa Robotics Competition’s (ORC) 15th anniversary, we will be giving away ten robotic arms so teams can join the ORC and compete in our latest Green Arm Challenge.

The objective of the Green Arm Challenge is to place bins of recyclable materials from a loading dock onto the appropriate conveyor, quickly and accurately, by using a robotic arm.

Full contest details and entry form can be found here.
