TraceParts is proud to be the partner of Robo’Lyon, one of the two French teams taking part in the FIRST Robotic Competition, an international robotics competition for high school students.

This latest competition will shine the spotlight on robotics, CAD, and mechanics, based on the theme of Star Wars.

Saint-Romain, France, February 12, 2020 – For the third year in a row, TraceParts is offering its support to the Robo’Lyon team, one of the two French teams taking part in the famous FIRST Robotics Competition. This legendary competition created by Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, is one of the most media-exposed and hotly contested competitions among high schools. This competition is supported by numerous multinationals, such as Google, Boeing, 3M, TE Connectivity, and more.

Since January 4, the team, made up of young high school students and volunteer mentors (teachers, alumni, professionals from the engineering and business sectors, students, etc.), have been inventing and creating prototypes for mechanisms intended to respond to the challenges of the game.


TraceParts is proud to be able to offer the team its support through its engineering platform that provides anyone with free access to 3D models, 2D drawings, and ECAD data (footprints, symbols, etc.) for industrial parts.

The rules of the game are simple: The robots must collect power cells (balls) and throw them through one of the three power ports to score points. Each port poses a different level of difficulty and offers a different number of points: lower port (1 point), outer port (2 points), and inner port (3 points). Teams from all around the world compete against each other. The team that achieves the highest number of points wins the competition.

The next few days will be vital for the Robo’Lyon team as they will be focused on assembling each part to create their competition robot.
