HK PolyU students honoured abroad for robotic design
HK Poly U President Message:
Three HK PolyU mechanical engineering students together with their locally designed robots joined the Student Design Competition organized by the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) in the United States last month. Remotely controlled, the three robots competed fiercely with other teams in several rounds of soccer game. With effective offensive and defensive strategy, the PolyU team eventually made it to the final and brought home the first runner-up! I think they well deserve the accolade, for they have aptly applied their creativity and knowledge in dealing with the challenge. Very impressive. Well done!

We are happy to announce that three Mechanical Engineering students from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University had competed at the final round of the Student Design Competition organized by ASME. The competition involved to design, build and run a vehicle which can examine a radioactively-contaminated area within one minute. Amidst the heat of the competition, the team had won First Place in video submission.
Led by Academic Supervisor Ir. Lo Kok-keung, the team of three completed the design and prototype in three months. The team leader was Miss Ng Kar-yee, with team members Mr. Mak Tsz-kin and Mr. Ng Tin-long. The vehicle features highly sensitive and accurate camera which would allow the vehicle to accomplish tasks quickly. Through ingenious creativity and dedication, the team had won First Place in video submission. With this success, the Hong Kong Section team earned their place to compete this event for eleventh consecutive years.
The competition was held on 17 November 2013 in San Diego, California, USA. The Hong Kong Section team was to compete against 20 teams from universities around the world.
