The third place was granted to both DJS Antariksh from India and Columbian Robocol. It is the first time in the history of ERC where two teams tied for a place on the podium.
During #ERC2020 teams were using an innovative remote-robot management platform and mobile robots
Year by year the level of ERC participants is higher and higher. It makes us glad that teams put faith in the remote edition of ERC 2020 and showed great professionalism while preparing for the competition. In the process of collecting technical documentation, this year's winner was awarded the Best Science Design Award for depth analysis and showing a truly interdisciplinary approach. It is the best example that continuous development and working on your projects with specialists from different science fields pays off -
