On 15 December 2018, Transport and Telecommunication Institute (TSI) successfully completed the first stage of the 12th Latvian Robotics Championship. This year's tournament was special because the TSI robotics tournament was celebrating its 5th anniversary.
 
The tournament was attended by 34 robotics teams and 180 robotics engineers, and members of the Technical Creativity Club. 165 robots participated in the tournament in two categories and four disciplines (Followers, Labyrinth, Folkrace and Sumo).
 
As usual, our tournament embodied the Christmas spirit. Robot NAO, which participated in the tournament opening, gave special thanks to the managers and teachers of robotics clubs. As part of the tournament, traditional educational and entertaining events, contests and quizzes were held allowing both the participants and guests to compete.
 
The TSI robotics team also started the tournament with success. In total, 9 prize-winning places were won. In the Lego Followers competition, the three places on the winner’s podium were occupied by the robots of our team: Daniils Spica won the 1st place, Valerijs Koroļs and Kirils Ivanovs won the 2nd and the 3rd place respectively. In the Lego Labyrinth discipline, Germans Livjakovs and Romans Kainovs stood on the second and third steps of the podium. The robots built by Antons Minajevs and Mihails Jermakovs won the 2nd and 3rd places in the Lego Folkrace competition. In the Lego Sumo junior and senior student groups, Albert Matykhevich and Otto Vaškevičs won the 3rd place.
