Robotics students do well in competition
This was the seventh year Waiakea High School entered the International Micro Robot Maze Competition hosted at Nagoya University in Japan.
On Nov. 10, this year’s contest attracted 131 entries from 11 universities and one high school representing five countries.
Waiakea High, led by adviser Eric Hagiwara and mentor Chester Lowery, has become comfortable being the lone high school representative in the university-level competition.
Normally the lone representative from the United States, in this year’s competition, Waiakea was joined by teams from Honolulu Community College led by Norman Takeaya.
The International Micro Robot Maze Contest has been hosted for 13 years in Nagoya, in conjunction with the International Symposium on Micro Mechatronics and Human Science (MHS).
This contest is designed to be a catalyst to increase discussion and innovation of the micromachine and micromechatronics technologies.
The Maze provides six types of competitions: Micro Robot Racer by 1-centimeter cube robot, Teleoperated Micro Robot Maze by 1-centimeter cube robot, Autonomous Micro Robot Maze by 1-inch cube robot, Remotely Operated Micro Robot Maze by 1-inch cube robot, Legged Micro Robot and Free Performance by Micro Robot.
