The Olympiad was conducted on the base of Innopolis University, and 500 young robotics enthusiasts from 50 regions of Russia participated in it.

The participants competed in 14 categories, 11 of them are permanent: “Creative” and “Regular” categories for elementary, junior and senior age groups, “Robot football”, “Advanced IRS”, “Water IRS”, “Road IRS”, “Flying IRS”. “IRS Project”, “Manipulators” and “Mobile IRS” are three new categories.

The main topic addressed in the Olympiad was “Food matters”. It is related to the second aim of the UN sustainable development plan: end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.

The winners of the competition and participants distinguished by the judges will come back to Innopolis University in August 2018 to participate in the Federal IT training camp. Following the camp results, the IU university will form the Russian national team that will participate in the World Robot Olympiad in Thailand this November.

Aleksey Khabibullin, head of the Project-Oriented Academic Competitions Office at Innopolis University: “We notice that the level of participants increases each year. For instance, the number of teams in the most difficult categories “Road IRS” and “Flying IRS” grew substantially. The geography of winners also extended. The participants from the Udmurt Republic took three gold medals this year – fantastic result. Traditionally the following regions provide strong teams: Primorsky Krai, Nizhniy Novgorod, Moscow, Republic of Tatarstan, and Saint Petersburg. Considering the level of participants, we have all chances to repeat successful results achieved last year at the WRO 2017.”

It was the fourth Russian Robot Olympiad organized on the base of Innopolis University. In 2014 the IT University became a national provider of the WRO. During the WRO 2017 the Russian team took ultimate first place overall winning 5 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals.

The Russian Robot Olympiad was conducted with support of Lego Education and ICL. Mel, Hightech, Populyarnaya Mechanica, Dnevnik.ru, Robogeek and Zanimatelnaya robototekhnika were Media Partners of the event.
