Test Competition and Development Workshop in Magdeburg

Watch live video from luhbots on
The preperation for the Test Competition and Development Workshop RoboCup@Work in Magdeburg have been completed. During the preparation our new team members familiarized with the Soft- and Hardware. Besides we  added new features to  the  youBot like ledstripes on the undertray.

This year the  Assembly Challenge was launched. In this Competition the youBot has to mount autonomously a tire to an axis of a modelcar-chassis.

We are looking forward to an interesting and hopefully a succesful event.

This underlines the good performance this season. The b-it-bots and Robo-Erectus showed a very good performance in the final run, and came in second and third:
The WF Wolves and robOTTO still had problems due to a very short preparation time but increased in overall performance! The newest Team KeJia Worker showed a lot of progress over the entire competition.

Results – Semi Final

We did it a perfect semi-Final! Everything worked like a charm, with now 1300 points ahead we will go into the final tomorrow. Team Robo-Erectus was pretty close though. They had problems with one object but besides this had a great run. WF Wolves and robOTTO keep upping there game and try to make up for there customs-related bad start. The b-it-bots are getting better and better in manipulation but had a small navigation error for the first time in china.

1) LUHbots 2050
2) Robo-Erectus 1700
3) b-it-bots 1105
4) WF Wolves 600
5) robOTTO 560
6) KeJia Worker 450

Results – Extended Transportation Test

Because we did not have a conveyor belt and parts of the rotating table are still lost in transport, we could not perform the CBT. The league decided to perform a new Test. The Extended Transportation Task, was to transport 9 objects. Thus the time was a problem for many teams. We were able to perform 9 transportations, but one was detected wrong. So we did not perform a perfect execution. The Team Robo-Erectus miss-grasped one and skipped one. The b-it-bots are still having problems with the vision, resulting in some missed objects. KeJia, WF Wolves and robOTTO had some problems and were not able to collect many points.

1) LUHbots 1920
2) Robo-Erectus 1785
3) b-it-bots 1020
4) WF Wolves 375
5) Kejian Worker 225
6) robOTTO 0

In two hours the semi-Final will start, this will combine precision placement with manipulation and navigation.
