NDO - LH-ATM from the Dong Nai province-based Lac Hong University have won the Vietnam’s 2018 robot contest for students after defeating LH-Galaxy from the same institution on May 13.

The winners received a cash prize of VND50 million (US$2,200) and, along with the runners-up, will represent Vietnam at the Asia-Pacific Robot Contest scheduled for August, in Vietnam’s northern city of Ninh Binh.

This is the eighth time that a team from Lac Hong University have won in a national competition and teams from the university also won the Asia-Pacific contest in 2014 and 2017.

This year, the Asia-Pacific contest is being hosted by Vietnam and is modelled on a ball throwing game known as “nem con” in Vietnamese, which is popular in northern provinces.

A team will gain an absolute victory if a ball is thrown by their robot through a ring and touches down on a cup.
