Phantom Dancer, a robotics team from the Faculty of Engineering, stood out from 13 competing teams from seven local tertiary institutions and became Champion of the Robocon 2019 Hong Kong Contest. ‘Great Urtuu’, inspired by a traditional Mongolian messenger system, is the theme of this year’s competition. Participants were challenged to build one manual and one automatic robotic prototype that have to execute a range of tasks over a miniature Mongolian landscape within three minutes. Phantom Dancer will go on to represent Hong Kong in the Asia-Pacific Robocon finale to be held in Mongolia.
