Advanced Motion Controls has launched a brand-new, educationally-focused contest for students in both Canada and the U.S.

This contest, called the Click&Move Motion and Automation De$ign Conte$t, is an extension of the company’s University Outreach program. In this contest, students will work in teams and submit project proposals that attempt solve real world problems of their choosing.  Simply using industry-available tools will allow participants to compete and win monetary awards as well as servo drive hardware.  

The purpose is to advance motion control technology and knowledge as provided by educational institutions located throughout Canada and the U.S.

The program is divided up into two phases over a typical academic year. The first phase will help students identify problems and solve them virtually, then the second phase will allow them to prove them physically.
