The team focuses on training students’ practical abilities and innovation abilities. Through a series of competitions and projects, such as “Domestic selection activities of ABU Robocon”, “Intel Cup College Students Electronic Design Contest—embedded system project invitational tournament”, “National College Students' Engineering Training Comprehensive Ability Competition”, “National College Students' Innovative Pilot Scheme”, “National College Students Electronic Design Contest”, and some other competitions, and based on the course of “Robot design and making”, a triune instructing system incorporating course, training and competition was established. Through designing, training, competition and other practical activities, students can comprehensively command inter-disciplinary knowledge like intelligent control, mechanical design and software development, thus realized the integration of students’ studying, practice, research and innovation, so that students can improve their problem-solving abilities and the sense of collaboration, and all in all, the goal of cultivating inter-disciplinary and innovative talents, and leading the future  scientific and technological innovation will finally come true.
