robot trucks sorting recycling


Our recycling robots are slow and inefficient. We need your help to recode our robots and turn DERP (Department of Environmental Resource Processing) into a recycling plant for the future!

Code-A-Bot is an interactive digital game putting you in charge of programming robot workers to collect and sort rubbish, improving the overall efficiency of a waste recycling plant. Using The Cube's digital touch screens, robots can be coded to move, sense, and collect or distribute rubbish around the facility and into the correct bins. You can also work together with other players and their robots to improve efficiencies and achieve the best results for DERP.

This event was launched at QUT's Robotronica.
