3rd Place for Austria at the RobotChallenge with Florian Kristof

Florian Kristof is the young man whom MERTEN supported with his team in the project „Smart CUP“ during his project work at the HTL Rennweg (Mechatronics).

In 13 different disciplines, 645 robots from 39 countries competed against each other at Europe’s largest robot competition in Vienna. Florian Kristof and his team from Austria won the bronze medal.

In the discipline „Humanoid Sumo“, which, like the Japanese traditional sport „Sumo Wrestling“, is about getting the opposing robot out of the ring, Florian Kristof won the bronze medal with his humanoid robot „XOXOBOT“.

Florian Kristof visited Merten and liked our robots and our automation technology, which is his vision and passion. Maybe he will even become a future employee in our team and will support our innovation strength with his  youthful brilliancy
