We would like to dedicate this short update to all the nice people, be it our competitiors or the blueshirts, who complimented us on our accomplishments. We recieved many positive comments on our website, feedback on our Youtube-channel and Github, the blueshirts were quite interested in our technical achievements. Best greetings to Jeremy from team … Competition Day #2.7 weiterlesen
So that's it for this year.. Sadly we were kicked out unlucky but still with our heads held high. Turning tokens worked pretty well at last, so we can be proud of our technical approach. We would like to thank all of our teammembers for their effords, especially our hardware- and softwareteam and of course … Competition Day #2.6 weiterlesen
Our first Knockout is starting right now - people getting sweaty... The good thing however is that we can not get kicked out because there is only one competitor.
In the last match: SUCCESS!! Our code seems to be finally working as intended. We managed to score a point savely by rotating a token rightly which got us pretty confident right now. Of course, we will still be improving the code, but now we have a stable baseline to work with.
You might have also noticed that the appearance of our bot altered a little bit. That is because the originally forward facing webcam was replaced with a GoPro while said webcam is now mounted at the back. This allws for more efficient measurement and increased agility inside of the arena.
We have now had our first two matches of the day and coding until 5 in the morning holds some advantages, apparently. Our driving and orientation is great, only precision is still a limiting factor. This should be easily fixed however.
Good morning people! After finally recieving our well deserved brittish breakfast this morning, we arrived at the racecourse (a little late but not too devastating) and are almost immediately faced with our first match. In this sense, we wish good luck and a fun time to all fellow SR-teams!
Midnight-coding time! We have been working all evening on everything ranging from code to costumes, and are eventually even making progress as well! In a more serious approach, we think we did not actually do to bad in yesterdays matches and are even better prepared for today.
The virus spreads out! Several sources have confirmed and documented sightings of team BRN's robot beeing quarantined.
The first day is almost over and we are already planning what to rework this evening at our hotel.
