Locals shine at robot championship

Wong Xi Jay and Mia Tan Wan Ru were named champion and first runner-up among Brunei participants in the 9th Global Professional Robot Championship (G-PRC) at Imperial Permaisuri Mall in Miri, Sarawak recently.

Zenius Tech Brunei’s Tricia Chiam Chiu Lan said the annual event was organised by Probo Korea for young children and their robots in a game of agility.

“There were several categories but Brunei and Miri participants joined the speed touch category. The world championship saw six participating countries – Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, China and Korea,” said Chiam.

In the competition, a number was displayed on a monitor and the children would guide the robots to hit a button with the number.

The robot’s size, weight and the children’s familiarity with the remote control determined the robot’s speed in the game that lasted for a minute.

Chiam also said the event took place simultaneously across five countries with matches streamed on online platforms. – Daniel Lim
