Robotics Tournament at TSI is a Serious Challenge!
On 21 November 2015, the Transport and Telecommunication Institute (TSI) once again hosted the Robotics Tournament.
Robotics competitions have been held at TSI for several years, and year after year they become even more gripping and popular.
The first tournament this year took place in March and was a big success; therefore, the organisers decided to conduct additional (autumn) competitions.
As a result, more than 75 teams (nearly 115 participants) from Riga, Jurmala, Ogre, Grobina, Liepaja, Valmiera, Iecava, Ventspils, Salaspils, Sigulda, Limbazi and Preili participated in the autumn season of the Robotics Tournament, and the Tournament has eventually acquired the status of one of the main competitions in Latvia among young designers and programmers.
The organisers of the Tournament are sure that the number of the participants will grow with each new stage and new records are yet to be set up!
In one word, the Robotics Tournament at TSI is a serious challenge and is here to stay!
