NDO - The Lac Hong University’s LH-Wao team successfully overcame 31 other competitors to become winner at the Robocon Vietnam 2019 final, which took place in the northern province of Hai Duong on May 12.

The second prize was presented to SKH3 team of Hung Yen University of Technical Education while two third prizes went to Sao Do Legend from Sao Do Hai Duong University and DCN-DT3 from Hanoi University of Industry.

As the result, LH-Wao will represent Vietnam at the ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) to be held in Mongolia this August.

The 2019 Robocon Vietnam, organised annually byVietnam Television (VTV), is the 18th of its kind held in Vietnam so far.

The 2019 Robocon promotes the idea of “Sharing the knowledge” initiated by host Mongolia, with its content inspired by the Urtuu system, first innovated by the nomadic Mongolians for exchanging information over long distances, and by the Mongolian folk game Shagai, during which players flick animal ankle bones at a target.

Vietnam has won the ABU Robocon seven times. The champions were Ho Chi Minh City University of Science and Technology in 2002, 2004 and 2006, Lac Hong University in 2014, 2017, and 2018, and Hung Yen University of Technology and Education in 2015.
