We are a young robotics team built with motivation and aspiration. We are going to participate at FTC Romania and many other competitions and we will try to do our best. We will never forget that: "It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end." (Ursula K. LeGuin)
We think that Robotics and STEM studies will open the gate of our FUTURE. By evolving on this path, we will be able to help other people and the environment by developing new technologies with fewer resources.
All of us have been amazed by robots since we were really young and now we want to develop a career which includes them because they represent evolution. Moreover, since we have heard about Sophia, the robot created using breakthrough robotics and artificial intelligence technologies, we have dreamed that, over some years, we could also try to create robots even better and more realistic than her.
During this project, we will use our knowledge about physics, math and IT that we accumulated in the last years by participating at a large variety of competitions. The biggest challenge that will occur throughout this project will be to make the connection between theoretical aspects and reality: friction forces, center of mass, mathematical algorithm of motion.
There is no denying that Robotics will play a crucial role in our everyday lives in the future. Just as the industrial revolution replaced human labor with machines, this more recent phenomenon will further lessen the need for human physical activities. Our most fervent ambition is to be able to take part in this "next step" of human advancement and therefore we believe that involvement in this project would greatly help to mold our minds and our future. Not only will we be learning different kinds of STEM skills, but also the most valuable skills of all: teamwork, tolerance, and acceptance. We think that this kind of projects, and robotics overall, are a great way of bringing people together.
Robotics will help us find new opportunities for our future careers because many aspects involved in this project are capable of developing a passion in the mind and soul of youngsters like we are.
This competition emphasizes the principle of less and less use of human manual work and we want to leave a mark on this process of automation. Our greatest desire would be to create a functional robot, knowing that it will be a hard work at its core.
Maybe, in the future, we will take part in big worldwide projects:
- Medical nano drones that will find and kill cancerous cells inside the human body
- First base on Mars populated with robots that will explore the mineral resources of the planet (at the weekend the robots will invite us at a ROBOPARTY 😊).
- Androids that will help people in their every-day lives.
- Bow-leg robots that can explore fast rough terrains.
- Artificial intelligence that can predict the various future alternatives by evaluating past actions and human personality.
- Snake robots that can explore drill holes.
- Artificial arms and legs with haptic feedback.
... in other words, to transform our dream in reality.
We think that in the future, the robots will help us conquer the Universe, they will generate all the resources that humanity needs, they will provide high-quality medical care or domestic services.
The challenge our generation faces will be to share all of this with the whole world.
