Spotlight on Mobile Robotics

Studica is takes pride as one of the Global Partners featured in this exhibition. Our association with WorldSkills starts with the 43rd WorldSkills Competition held in São Paulo, Brazil in 2015. We are honored to serve as both a Global Partner of WorldSkills and the official exclusive supplier of the WorldSkills Autonomous Robotics Competition for the Lyon 2024 and Shanghai 2026 events. Our contributions to the museum encompass the engaging Studica Robotics Waste Management video game, the complete set of components featured in the WorldSkills Shanghai 2022 Mobile Robotics Collection, and a mobile robot crafted from that particular competition.

In response to the pandemic and control restrictions in China, the WorldSkills Shanghai 2022 competition underwent a transformation, evolving into the WorldSkills 2022 Special Edition Mobile Robotics competition hosted in Bordeaux. The WorldSkills organization demonstrated exceptional efforts to make that competition a success, and we look forward to the competition returning to Shanghai in 2026. The Competition Collection includes essential components such as the Studica VMX Robotics Controller for WorldSkills, the Servo Power Block, and the Titan Quad Motor Controller. With over 1500 components ranging from electronics, motors, and servos to U-Channel, mounting plates, brackets, beams, gears, sprockets, pulleys, axles, slides, rack & pinion, wheels, bushings, bearings, couplings, collars, spacers, screws, nuts, standoffs, and various accessories. The challenge presented was to design mobile robots aimed at assisting medical staff in a hospital setting. Explore further details of the competition and its outcomes
