Tapir Lab. @ TEKNOFEST 2023 Digital Technologies in Industry Competition – Advanced Category

Tapir Lab. has completed the final competition of Digital Technologies in Industry Competition – Advanced Category in TEKNOFEST 2023. The fundamental objective of the Digital Technologies in Industry Competition is developing autonomous mobile robots that can transport materials between two pre-determined points by following lines, updating planned route in real time by sensing changes in the environment, and warning the operators in case of an emergency. These are the characteristics of mobile robots used in manufacturing facilities and warehouses. After a long preparation phase, Tapir Lab. has participated in the competition with the TapirBot v2.0 which is developed considering the obligations and requirements of the competition.

Tapir Lab. congratulates all the contestants and wishes them success!
