Back on track

Big news! We finally got Lisa! But it took a lot of effort. Ivanna wasted two days at the airport talking to many people and finally made it to the Lufthansa Manager of the airport which went with her personally to the storage room for lost luggage. And surprised by the big amount of luggage there (5 suitcases) we found ours! It took three people inspecting the room to find our suitcase (we provided pictures) and somehow they managed to not find it among those 5 suitcases. Good Job. Ivanna basically smelled the suitcase from a far distance. And when we got this positive message at the venue we where jumping like German soccer fans would have done when Germany would have scored against the Mexican team during the soccer game yesterday.

There it is! The lost suitcase!
There it is! The lost suitcase!.
Fast constructing Lisa, now that we got all her parts

There are minor issues, like that the screen of Lisa is broken after the long transport and our audio adapter is broken as well. Seems like it was handled like the ingredients of a cocktail during the transportation.

However, later that day we passed the robot inspection with both of our robots and presented the poster. Lisa is up fully functional and TIAGo is also doing well.

During the night we trained models for the various objects using mask rcnn. For that we got heavy support from Anatoli who did tune training of the model remotely when we had issues even so he was on a family trip during the day.

We also got much support from Niklas, who is giving support for all the configuration. Even so we managed just to bring 6 people to the RoboCup we are happy to have this remote support which eases up some tasks. Thanks guys!
