The sport of Robotic Combat. Are we about to see it take off in Australia

If you’re unaware of what it’s about, two or more teams enter a remote-controlled machine into an arena, and the last machine standing wins. The concept has spawned the reboot of robotic combat shows in the United States and United Kingdom, and several related shows have begun in China earlier this year. But what about Australia? Could we see something like this take off here?
Steven Martin, research Engineer at the Australian Centre of Robotic Vision, and also one of the brains behind the most successful Australian combat robot to compete internationally spoke the James Hill to provide more insight.
