Hat Trick

WE WON!!!!

The preparation for todays finals meant a lot of stress for us last evening and also this morning. However, it went quite well in the end. The overall theme for the finals was food – so we came up with the “Lifecycle of Food”. That meant letting Lisa create a semantic map while doing an exploration of her (unknown) environment. So for example she knows where the food is stored.

In the meanwhile we showed how TIAGo can learn a task — like pouring some water into a cup — by demonstration. Just after showing us what he learned, we ordered TIAGo to clean the toilet like we did for last years World Robot Summit.

Competing against the Pumas from Mexiko in the finals, our performance – and also being already 1170 points ahead – lead us to the first place. Our friends from the new French team Catie achieved the third place. Conclusion: we made a hat-trick and are now the most successful ‘at-home’ team of the whole RoboCup. Yay!
