Come and join ROBOT GAMES @ Hari Belia 2015

BATTLE OF THE BRAIN

News
  • Many have been suggesting Cytron to organize a robotics competition, but somehow we did not do so due to some internal consideration. All this while, we have Sirim’s Robocon, UNIMAP’s MIROC, UNITEN’s Robogamez and lots more which provided a good platform for all of us to showcase our skills and ability in building robots. However, we were so upset when we noticed that these competitions are not scheduled in 2015 calendar (until today). 

    Robotics competition is very important for an engineering student to strengthen their skills and knowledge that they studied. It is a good opportunity to practice your hands-on skills, problem-solving skills as well as team work spirit. As most of you may know, all co-founders of Cytron are former team members of UTM Robocon team. Without Robocon, there won’t be Cytron. Not just Cytron, there is quite a number of techno-startup formed by former Robocon participants and they are doing very well now serving the local and global market! All of them started from participating in various robotics competitions. Hence, we think its time we take up the role of organising a robotics competitions to let the practice go on.

    We named this competition as Robot Games as we hope it would be like a sport games (Olympic Games, SEA Games, etc.). Rather than physical battle, in Robot Games we emphasize on ‘battle of the brain’ where the challenge, excitement and spirit are equally important. We treat Robot Games as a public asset where everyone can participate (be it students, hobbyist, makers, teachers, engineers, etc.) using any robot platform (PIC, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, rero, Lego Mindstorm, Bioloid, Nao, etc.) you want. You can even host Robot Games at your own event anytime you want.

    This Robot Games will be held in Putrajaya in conjunction with our famous National Hari Belia. Since this is the first attempt, we only manage to prepare 3 games (we hope in future we can have more games) where each game has 1-2 categories. The game rules and registration links are as below. Feel free to contact us if you have any question: robotgames@cytron.com.my

    We really hope you can join us and enjoy the games!

    Note: If you need an official invitation letter, please email us your school particulars.

  • If you get message of "uncertified manufacturer" on your Arduino IDE v1.6.1, don't panic! Just visit our updates here. BTW, CT-UNO does not have compatibility issue with any of the Arduino IDE.

     

  • Well, beisdes wheel, there are coupling :) Cytron is releasing wheel solution for 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 15mm diameter D round shaft motor. Check it out. 1st, the 5 inches Robot Wheel with TPE rubber as the outer tyre and ABS material for the rim. This robot wheel fit perfectly with the new 8mm, 10mm and 15mm metal hub/couping.

    OK, now the metal hub/coupling, there are three sizes. The 8mm hub is perfect for IG42 DC Geared Motor, another 10mm metal coupling is perfect fit for IG45 geared motor, 30W Vexta brushless motor and 40W DC Brush motor. The biggest coupling with 15mm hole size is manufactured for 50W Vexta Brushless motor or 120W DC Brush motor. These three type of metal hub/coupling are made Steel with zinked plated and it offers super strong mounting between motor and wheel. We also provide the screws for mounting. Here is the picture of 8mm metal hub.
    Did I mention? If you the combo set, we have it too:
     
    Last but not least, the wheel solution for 6mm shaft, or the famous SPG30, SPG30E, IG32E and SPG50 gear motor. The outer tyre is made of rubber, and it is 80mm  and ABS for the rim. One of the special features: No coupling is needed, the wheel itself will fit perfectly to 6mm D shape shaft!
