A team of Kazakhstan students from the International IT University recently returned to Kazakhstan from the 11th ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest 2012 that was held in Hong Kong among Asia Pacific countries, Tengrinews.kz reports referring to Nurlan Karimzhan, senior lecturer of the University.

It was the first time Kazakhstan took part in the contest. Kazakhstan's national team consisted of three students of the IT University. They were 1st-year student Shyngys Sakipkerey and two 3rd-year students Galymzhan Mussagaliyev and Rassulzhan Poltayev. The participants designed and constructed their robots themselves. They spent about $3,500 on each robot. The University funded their work. It took the students about two months to construct each of the robots. They were done specially for the contest and are not meant for any further usage.

According to the rules of the contest, every team had to fulfill several tasks, using their robotic inventions. The rules of the contest were based on a famous Cheung Chau Bun Festival (a traditional Chinese festival on the island of Cheung Chau in Hong Kong). The participants had to overcome obstacles riding their robots and drive the robots down a highway. Then they had to purchase tokens and drop the tokens into a special machine. Then the robot took a special basket and gave it to another robot, a carrier-robot, that took the basket up a mountain. Then the third robot gathered the buns with its pincers.

The robots had to do all this in three minutes. Chinese team was the fastest; they fulfilled the tasks in 45 seconds. Kazakhstan-made robot failed to pass through all the stages. However, according to Karimzhan, Kazakhstan students got a huge experience at the contest. The competition has inspired them to continue their work in this field and develop their skills further.

Damir Abdukhaliuly, rector of the university, said that the students experienced some problems during their project. First of all it was the lack of the required parts.”It is impossible to purchase all the necessary parts. We had to order them from the United States or from China. Usually it took a lot of time to get these parts delivered and sometimes they sent us the wrong parts that were different from what we asked for. There are no conditions for development of this area of engineering in Kazakhstan,” Abdukhaliuly said.

The rector also said that the university was going to organize a similar contest in Kazakhstan next yer. This competition will gather all Kazakhstan inventors at one site. “IT industry is 50% robotics nowadays. We won’t be able to do without it. All we do here in Kazakhstan is write codes. We could write millions of codes, but we won’t be able to outrun China and India, at least in the near future. One code costs one dollar in China, whereas our workforce are much more expensive,” Abdukhaliuly explained. According to him a lot of Kazakhstan enterprises continue working using old methods, and they might be interested in new Kazakhstan-made robots.
