Before we begin to tell you about the story of our robotic contest in 1998, the creator of this page would like to show 2 pictures below and share with you the warmest moment of the participants in the legged-robots contests of Thailand.

How it all began..
CAT is the only organization who organizes Micromouse Contest once a year in Thailand. The purpose of this activity is to promote artificial intelligence programming practice among students and to search for a national winner team to paticipate in the international contest (in SEARCC xx exhibition and conference) under its sponsorship. CAT 's committee initiated the micromouse contest in Thailand as part of SEARCC'96 exhibition and conference which were held in Bangkok that year. CAT imported micromouse and mazes from Singapore, donated them to several universities and invited university instructors and students to organize racing teams. The event was a high success so CAT continue organizing the event in the following years of its anual ComputerThai'xx exhibition and confference.
For the legged robots contest, it began in 1998. Together with the micromouse contest, CAT organized "Intelligent Walking Robot Contest" for the first time under its umbrella in ComputerThai'98.
In this page, we show some pictures from the 1998-event below.
