The ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest 2018 (ABU Robocon 2018) will be held on August 26 in the northern province of Ninh Binh.

It will be the third year Vietnam has organised the event, which is designed for technology students in the Asia-Pacific region.


According to the organiser, the Vietnam Television, the theme of this year's competition is inspired by Vietnamese folk game “nem con” (throwing ball through the ring).

Participating teams will be required to design unique and colourful balls that require accuracy, techniques, and skills.

Last year, the contest was held in Tokyo, Japan, where Vietnam became the champion for the sixth time. Japan and Thailand claimed second and third position, respectively.

Vietnam has entered the competition every year since its first edition in 2002.

Three of the five previous championships were claimed by Ho Chi Minh City University of Science and Technology (2002, 2004, 2006), while Lac Hong University won in 2014, and Hung Yen University of Technology and Education triumphed the following year.
