CHIBOTS TO HOLD LIVE STREAMING ROBOMAGELLAN CONTEST
Robo-Magellan is a robotics competition emphasizing autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance over varied, outdoor terrain. Here’s a peak at a past CHIBOTS (Chicago area robotics group) contest, click here. Robots have three opportunities to navigate from a starting point to an ending point and are scored on time required to complete the course with opportunities to lower the score based on contacting intermediate points. The Chicago Robotics Club, CHIBOTS, will be holding their next RoboMagellan contest Saturday, and will webcast it on USTREAM, so don’t miss the action!!
Inspired? I'm feeling inspired to find a vehicle for a study on the tactility and textures of robotics.
