ABU Robocon 2018
The 2018 ABU Robocon will be held at Ninh Binh – Vietnam. The theme is "NÉM CÒN". The concept behind the theme is the ancient folk game of Vietnam. The match is between 2 teams(viz. red and blue), each team consisting of two robots.
Vietnam is on the fast development track. However, the traditional culture is always treasured. The concept of the ABU Robocon 2018's Theme & Rules is based on an interesting folk game called “Shuttlecock Throwing”. The game consists of an open field with a 15m bamboo trunk planted in the middle. A bamboo ring is hung on top of the bamboo stick. The ring is covered in yellow and pink papers. Yellow color represents the moon, while pink represents the sun.
The heart and soul of this game is the Shuttlecock. The shuttlecock is an object made of cotton balls or filled with rice husks, symbolizing prosperity and happiness. The shuttlecock is hung by a string sewn to the center of the Shuttlecock. It is decorated with colorful cotton representing the colors of the rainbow. When playing, the player holds the end of the string to swing it clockwise various times before throwing and aims for the center of the ring. If the shuttlecock makes it through the ring, the player wins. The flying shuttlecock depicts a flying dragon, iconic of human power and the universe. In this spirit, teams of ABU Robocon 2018 are expected to design formidable robots and charismatic shuttlecocks showing their colors.
