Robot Battle in Asyq Atu and Arqan Tartys: A New Stage in Sports Development

The winners of the Republican Championship in Sports Robotics, KazRoboSport-2023, have been determined. During this competition, robots controlled by their developers competed in traditional Kazakh sports and games such as "asyq atu," "arqan tartys," "aq súyek," and Japanese sumo. A total of 214 participants from 20 regions of the country took part in the finals.

Since 2016, the Championship in Sports Robotics has been held annually, attracting over 4,000 participants from various regions of Kazakhstan. The spring qualifying rounds take place in all corners of the country. On November 5th, the final event was held in Astana, where winning teams from each category representing regional and city teams of national significance gathered.

"Our organization is based on public principles and does not receive financial rewards. Our main goal is to popularize scientific and technical creativity and enhance the prestige of engineering professions among children and youth. Additionally, we provide an opportunity to apply acquired knowledge in practice to solve relevant engineering tasks and work with modern technology. In parallel, we also focus on enhancing the qualifications of computer science teachers, as they bear the primary responsibility for teaching robotics. It's worth noting that all our events are conducted with the support of sponsors," said Ayzhan Zhekeyeva, President of the Kazakhstan Federation of Educational and Sports Robotics "KazRobotics."

All tasks are original developments by partners from the National Robotics Sports Development movement NatRoboCom and members of the "KazRobotics" Federation. Technical regulations are designed to assess skills in constructing and programming educational robot models for competition in terms of speed and accuracy.

The main audience of the championship includes children from rural areas. Yard teams, private robotics schools, and specialized lyceums and colleges also participate. "The championship promotes the activation of interest in innovation and advanced technologies, as well as the identification and support of talented young people. This competition is similar in spirit to sports competitions held in accordance with world standards and rules of Olympiads and championships, where robots created and programmed by people perform instead of participants. We are confident that such competitions can provide the country with a new influx of highly qualified scientific and technical personnel," noted Daulet Beymurzinov, Director of the Office of Educational Programs at Astana Hub.

As part of the championship, a Roundtable on Robotics Development was organized, featuring experts, and an exchange of experience among regional representatives of the Federation was conducted. The award ceremony for the winners took place at Astana IT University, where a career guidance event was also held by the university staff.

The organizer of the Republican Championship in Sports Robotics KazRoboSport-2023 is the Kazakhstan Federation of Educational and Sports Robotics "KazRobotics," with the main sponsor being the international technopark Astana Hub.
