OUR GENERAL TREND – learning through the robotics competitions
ROBOTRAFFIC – robotraffic.net.technion.ac.il
This is a new initiative of the Leumi Robotics Center, and its aim is to teach safer driving through robotic competition. The vision is to provide early education in traffic laws and the physical limitations of vehicles and drivers, and to create ways to make the road “smarter” in order to reduce the unacceptably high accident rate for youngsters (and adults) in Israel. This will be achieved through a robotic competition that by its nature will attract the attention of young people. The unique ROBOTRAFFIC initiative will start in Israel, and will eventually became an international event. Students will develop basic models in the robotic Laboratory of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion according to scenarios and rules that are currently being established.
