Sponsors have been very generous with donations this year, so we will be able to award thousands of dollars worth of prizes and awards.
Last years' event tallied over 2000 spectators and competitors from all over the US and Canada.
Competitions at this year's event include robotic sumo in micro-, mini- and Japan classes, beginner and advanced line following, a robot talent show, and a new out-and-back walking robot course. In addition to robotic competitions, the exposition will include technology demonstrations, robotic displays, sales of robotic kits, components and supplies by vendors, and a Kids' zone.
Additional information, including registration, rules for each of the robotic competitions, pictures of last years' event, directions to the Smith Center, Hotel and Motel information, and a list of Sponsors is available at the PDXBOT website:
