The girls and boys of the Smilebots robotics team are the most beautiful expression of the creativity and ingenuity of the young Ticino, which keep the canton's name high abroad.
In Lugano, Mayor Michele Foletti wanted to pay homage to Elisa Negri, Gaia Gladulich, Federico Colapicchioni, Leonardo Domeniconi and Federico Corsale at Palazzo Civico.
They took first prize in the competition "robot games", second in the "innovative project" category and fifth place in the general classification of the prestigious "First Lego League", held in California last May.
The coach was also present at the meeting Conrad Corsale e Crestores Giotto Boggia, president and director of the Ticinese Digital Evolution Association, known to most as ATED, which supported the Ticino team together with the town hall on the banks of the Ceresio.
The “First Lego League” competition is among the most important in the field of challenges of programming and robotics: 75 teams competed in the final in Long Beach and as many as 40 competed at the start of the competition, in the various national and regional challenges: numbers that attest to the value of the results obtained by Smilebots.

Geolocated data of pressure, temperature, humidity, noise, vibration, lighting, air quality

<strong>The Eurobursar</strong> robotics Smilebots presented the Febo project with which it was able to amaze the judges of the American final.
Febo is an Internet of Things device capable of detecting, collecting and sharing data through a dedicated platform.
Using various sensors, it can, for example, collect geolocated data on pressure, temperature, humidity, noise, vibration, lighting, air quality.
The device can also turn into an innovative one communication tool.
Febo also contains a lighting system equipped with a sensor that detects the amount of light present: in some pedestrian areas it can be used as an SOS column to call and ask for help.
It is a tool not only ingenious in itself, but with numerous opportunities for use and development.
Finally, the Mayor Michele Foletti presented the girls and boys of the Smilebot team with a water bottle and some gadgets from the City of Lugano.
