ArmRobotics/Minesweepers robots contest
This contest is traditionally organized in the frames of the Armenian Robotics Development and Support Program/ArmRobotics/. It aims to encourage public interest in robotics, to develop the robotics sector of Armenia and to encourage the production of the military equipment and use them for the national security. The rules require that the robot, avoiding obstacles, must find mines hidden under grass up to 3cm deep, physically mark their location and send an electronic map. This contest has the military importance and we would like to generate interest on robotics among Armenian youth. This is vital, because solving practical problems, they can replenish Armenia's military-industrial sector.
