The competition, known as the Multi-Autonomous Ground-robotics International Challenge (MAGIC), was a joint initiative by Australia's Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and the US Department of Defense.
The Western Australia-based team, dubbed MAGICIAN, will be Australia's sole representative in the grand final. The United States will be sending a total of three teams to the competition, while Japan and Turkey will both be sending one team.
Earlier this year, 23 robotics teams from around the world (four from Australia) competed in the initial stages of the competition.
