Friday evening we came back from the European Robotics League Tournament in Oldenburg. It was a pretty cool but also exhausting week.

There were four benchmark tasks to be done: Getting to Know My Home, Welcoming Visitors, Catering for Granny Annie’s Comfort and Visit My Home. Over all, they went quite well and we are at least on the second place of each category. The official scoring can be found here. So we are very ambitious to reach the first places in two weeks in Lisbon — we will challenge the local SocRob team there.

On wednesday morning, a reporter from a local journal interviewed us and a photographer took some photos of Lisa and the team. You can have a look at the article and the photos here.

The five days in Oldenburg went by very fast and having the chance to benchmark our robot in a real smart apartment was a pleasure! :)

Ever wondered how Lisa looks from the inside? Here is a picture we made while disassembling her for the transportation back home
