The QUT NIARC team has been working on our entry to the National Instruments Autonomous Robotics Competition since the beginning of the year, and now we are less than one week away from the live finals for the competition. Teams from New Zealand and Australia will battle head-to-head to claim the top spot as best autonomous robot of 2015!

Hosted by UNSW (The University of New South Wales) at the Scientia Building on Tuesday, the 22nd of September, there will be guests from industry and academia, and representatives from each team competing in NI ARC.

The general public is welcome to attend at any point on the day. Admission is FREE. Quarter finals will begin at approximately 2pm.
