Anyone can participate, no registration is required at the beginning of this phase. Participants can simply download a publicly available repository containing the simulator (instructions coming soon).
The goal is to pick up a cube and move it on a given trajectory.
At the end of the phase, teams will be required to hand in a 2-page proposal and their code. Teams will be selected based on a combination of their score and the quality of the proposal.
The teams that passed phase 1 will be granted access to the real robots and will be able to submit their code (instructions coming soon). The objective of phase 2 is to solve the same tasks as in phase 1, but now on the real robot.
At the end of phase 2, participants will be required to hand in a 2-page report detailing the approaches used and their code (instructions coming soon). Teams will be ranked based on the score achieved by their code, as long as the report passes an acceptance threshold.
Building shapes out of small cubes, more details coming soon.
