Pop Can Challenge – Seattle Robotics Society
September 15 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Following our regular monthly meeting, the Pop Can Challenge, which is a robotics competition emphasizing autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance in a simulated indoor living environment, will take place. Robots have three opportunities to navigate from a starting point, accomplish various tasks, and then return to an ending point. Scoring is primarily task-based, with completion times used to rank robots with identical task scores. A maximum of 5 minutes is allocated for each trial.
