Previously on August 26, at the Ninh Binh Sports Center, 19 teams from 18 countries and territories competed at ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest 2018. Two teams from LHU were LH - ATM (Vietnam 1) and LH - GALAXY (Vietnam 2) representing Vietnam to compete at the event.

The ceremony to welcome the champion of ABU Robocon 2018 specially took place at LHU.

The theme of the ABU Robocon 2018 is “Nem Con” (con throwing) - a popular folk game of northern ethnic minority people. The control robot will deliver the con to the automatic robot to throw towards the three rings on the field. The team who throws the yellow con through the ring that landed on a ground will win the game immediately.

At the competition, LH - ATM and LH - GALAXY teams defeated six strong teams from Egypt, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan and China to win the convincing victory in 16 seconds.
