Greetings humanoids!

There’s no doubt that robots are here; we are seeing them more often in the home, in the sky, or working on the farm! And we know firsthand that many engineers fell in love with hardware or coding by attempting to build their first robot.

We’re excited to launch our biggest competition yet! We want to see what cool stuff you can build in the robotics space. This could be anything from drone navigation and wheeled vehicles, to modular boards like a super-efficient motor controller or a modular wireless host board. You can enter the competition as an individual, or sign up as a team.

Full contest details are here

  • 1st prize - USD 1,500
  • 2nd prize - USD 500
  • 3rd prize - USD 250
  • Honorable mentions: Particle Argon Dev Kits to the top 20+ projects!

Evaluation Criteria
We’ll be reviewing projects with a group of Flux pros and a panel of judges. We’ll also be posting a Community favorite, voted on by you!
  • Reusability - Give back to the community! You will likely get more votes if other users can reuse your work on their projects. Consider creating a sublayout or a modular design.
  • Creativity - Robotics encompasses various use cases, from power systems and controllers, sensing or haptic systems, to vision and navigation modules—bonus points for high power efficiency.
  • Readability - Add a clear description of your project. Try to make your schematics and PCB readable to better showcase your design to the community.
