The Contest Theme

Another Step towards the Future

In 2000, member countries of the Asia-Paci?c Broadcasting Union (ABU) jointly agreed to organize an annual handmade robot contest to be participated by college, university and polytechnic students in the region. In addition to promote relationship and cultural exchange to foster closer ties among countries in the Asia-Paci?c region, the objective of the contest was to develop knowledge, creativity and innovation among younger people in the region.

The ?rst ABU Asia-Paci?c Robot Contest, known as ABU Robocon, was launched in Tokyo, Japan in 2002 after which member countries took turn to host the regional event. Thailand played host in 2003 to be followed by Korea (2004), China (2005), Malaysia (2006), Vietnam (2007), India (2008), Japan (2009) and Egypt (2010).
