We just packed our three robots. Starting from tomorrow we are in Magdeburg for the RoboCup GermanOpen. We compete against 8 other teams from all over the world. Among them are Mexico, India, France, Netherlands and of course some more German teams. This year there has been a major revision of the rulebook. In total there are now optionally up to 20 tasks in two scenarios that the robot could attend. Those tasks have to be chosen wisely as there is just a limited amount of time.
The past three weeks had be an up and down. Due to a hardware issue with TIAGo which PAL Robotics fixed quite fast we could not use TIAGo the last three weeks and hope that the fixed part will arrive by tomorrow.
This year the University of Koblenz and University of Bielefeld are chairing the @Home league together. The first two days are meant for preparation. The poster session and robot inspection are scheduled for the second preparation day.
Twist your fingers for us. We will distribute updates in the blog, on facebook and instagram.
Update: this morning we received the fixed joint.
