It’s certainly hard to find any fun in the many precautions demanded by the Coronavirus pandemic. But a computer science student at Lawrence Technological University has managed to come up with one for youthful robot builders.
The Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation has increased the number of all-girl teams it is sponsoring in Robofest, a competition for student-programmed autonomous robots invented by Lawrence Technological University computer science professor C.J. Chung.
Five Lawrence Technological University students and LTU computer science professor CJ Chung will work with a Korean auto parts company and a Russian tech giant to create a taxi service from Detroit’s TCF Center to downtown Detroit hotels for the 2020 North American International Auto Show in June.
This winter and spring, thousands of students from around the world will be programming putting robots for their chance to win trophies and scholarships in Lawrence Technological University’s World Robofest Championship. Nearly 1,000 teams and almost 3,000 students from around the world are expected to participate in the event, founded in 1999 by LTU computer science professor C.J. Chung.
Lawrence Technological University has received a $40,000 grant from DENSO, the world’s second largest mobility supplier, for programs focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
