Robosota Ry is an association founded in 2003 with the aim of promoting and advancing knowledge in electronics, hydraulics, information technology, electrical engineering, and robotics among hobbyists and enthusiasts.
The association fulfills its purpose primarily by organizing Robosota tournaments and demonstrations, as well as through other means.
Robosota Ry also supports club activities organized by schools and other organizations by providing information about the sport and creating safe and fair foundations for engaging in it.
The association is non-profit and does not engage in selling or renting its services to businesses. However, as a school, community, or event organizer related to the field, you are welcome to reach out and inquire about our participation in events to showcase our activities. You can find Robosota, for example, at the Assembly Summer computer event, where we host our annual "main tournament."
