HEARTS Team participated in almost all tests in Edinburgh SR Tournament, adding two new benchmarks. “One breakthrough we had was in our person tracking algorithm. It had been a little flaky in testing but we made many improvements during the competition and were able to achieve good performance by the end”, team points out.
Navigation tests were the focus of Robotics Lab UC3M Team in León, and were fairly satisfied with their final scores. “Participating in tournaments like this helps a lot in defining goals and improving the work capacity when solving unexpected problems along the tournament, in real situations”, they highlight.
IRI@ERL Team set two goals for Edinburgh: improve object detection algorithms, and be capable of grasping objects. It was ambitious and they faced problems, but are happy with the outcome: “As the saying goes: nothing ventured, nothing gained! At the same time, we greatly improved objects detection and position calculation. Thanks to this we could do object manipulation, automatized and avoiding obstacles. A major success given the little time our team had for preparation”, team says.
