US$ 1,6 Million for BattleBot Competition Winner

The MAGIC 2010 international robotics competition, the first of its kind in the world, has been established to attract academia and industry teams to develop fully autonomous robots for military, commercial and civilian emergency applications.

Twelve of the world’s most technologically-savvy universities and several innovative companies have teamed up and are now finalists in an international robotics competition with a U.S. $1.6 million prize.

In addition to the prize money, winning teams will have a unique opportunity to work with American and Australian military organizations to develop the advanced robots that will work alongside – and instead of – Soldiers on future battlefields.
