More than 5,000 contestants from around the world will assemble at the 2018 World Robot Contest Finals next month in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei province, the organizer announced on June 7, 2018.

The finals will be held from July 26 to 29 in the economic and technological development zone of Wuhan, an important robotics development area.

This year's contests include a brain-computer interface (BCI) controlled contest, a Coexisting-Cooperative-Cognitive (Tri-Co) contest, an industrial skills contest, as well as a competition for young designers.
