[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Participation - IROS 2018 Program-A-Robot Competition

JoseMaria Cañas Plaza-2
Dear colleagues,

we would like to invite you to participate in the Program-A-Robot
Competition inside IROS 2018. It proposes two achievable challenges
about programming (in Python) the intelligence of a drone:
1.- it has to escape from a hangar with moving walls
2.- it has to search and pursue another moving drone (the 'mouse').
A simple API is provided that makes easy the access to drone sensors
(like the camera) and the control of its 3D movements (take-off,
speed, rotation...).

* fully online
* no software installation required, just a web browser
* open and free, no participation fee

It is a nice opportunity for grad, master or phd students and
researchers worldwide to enjoy programming a drone.
More details on [1] and the video of the 2017 finals on [2]. The
finals can be followed inside IROS and will be also streamed on
YouTube Live. Just register and send your code before September 29th

Best regards,

JoseMaria Cañas   on behalf of the Organizing Committee
