First day with competitions

Today we had a first run in all three functional benchmarks. At first the object perception was tested. The goal is to recognize the class and instance of an object that is placed on the table in front of the robot. Lisa recognized 6 out of 10 classes correctly. Not bad for the first run, but we need to improve.

Afterwards the Navigation got it’s challenge. Beginning the challenge we had some interfacing problems with the roah_reff_box because of an old code version in our repo - but once we updated the code Lisa did a pretty good job. Even though the testbed has a lot of narrow passages Lisa drove to all goals without hitting anything. The final results are not yet published, but we should be near the top.

In the evening the speech recognition test took place - this never happened. (Raphael: “Disst ihr mich jetzt in eurem Blog?”)
