From Grand Challenges such as the recent DRC, to STEM events such as FIRST, to startup pitches such as Robot Launch, competitions have been used to push the state of the art in the field, inspire the next generation of technology experts, create networking opportunities between startups and investors, and much more. But how effective are competitions in meeting these goals? What do participants, coaches and organizers think? Why are competitions important to the field of robotics?

We are surveying participants, team leaders and organizers of robotics competitions to find out. If you have ever been involved in a robotics competition, please take 5-10 minutes to share your experience with us.

Our goal is for the survey results to serve as a reference about the effect of robotics competitions on education, research and business, and to gauge whether participants prefer this nontraditional approach to learning and gaining experience in the field.

The results will be published on Robohub along with an analysis of robotics competitions as a tool for meeting various objectives. Your input will make a difference – please take 5-10 minutes to complete this survey on robotics competitions, and share the link with your friends and colleagues.

Thanks!
