Who are we ?

Montefiore Team is a robotic team from the University of Liège (Belgium) involved in the European contest "Eurobot".

This team consists of engineering students from various fields (electronics, computer science, mechanics, ...) doing their master thesis, and of several academic members (researchers and teaching assistants).
The team works under the supervision of Prof. Bernard Boigelot.

Participating to the Eurobot contest is a practical exercise which allowed the students to concretely put into practice the theories taught in the different disciplines and to take part in a stimulating competition, passing through a qualifying phase in Belgium before coming up against the best European university teams.
