The interview at school before the victory at the world robotics championships
While the local press is reporting on the young robotics champions, who won the world title in the Rescue Simulation Category at RoboCup Junior in Bordeaux, here is a nice interview from the TGR Veneto (June 21) when Michele Tesser and Alin Obodescu were still students at the Vito Volterra School in San Donà di Piave (Venice). The two students qualified for the world robotics championship at the 16th edition of RomeCup in May [see news: World Rescue Champions]. In the Rescue Simulation category, teams have to develop and programme strategies so that independent robots will act like true rescue robots and move around real and virtual worlds to save lives.
Now, both Alin and Michele have graduated, and they have no doubts about their future. They will study Computer Science at the University of Padua.
In the news report by Maura Bertanzon, entitled San Donà di Piave: Small Robots Make Us Dream” (TGR Veneto, Rai, June 21, 2023), there also are interviews with Davide Rorato and Denis Kosumovic, two other students who participated in the Rescue Maze Category, placing fourth and winning the “Technical Innovation Award.”
