ProboCups and RoCKIn

Hello guys,

Lisa here ;). These past two weeks were really exciting for me. Me and my team had the first two ProboCups, some sort of a testrun for the real competition next year. The different teams had to test their games that they did for me under real RoboCup conditions.

probo1Taking under consideration that it was their first time doing this, they were really good. Of course they were some problems and some games didn’t work well. But I think it was a good experience for everyone including me. When we had our second ProboCup today we managed to get some points in games that we didn’t in the first one. So some improvements were made, but unfortunately we lost some points in previously successful games. It was a little bit of a bummer, but nethertheless I’m happy and I think that my team is getting better and better.

But it’s not the end of my report for today. Next week i will travel together with my team from Robbie23 to France to compete at the RoCKIn Competition.

rockin1This team worked really hard and my expactations for winning some of the challenges are really high. I hope that I will be able to tell you good news the next time and maybe I will learn some french words while I’m there :).

GoodBye and Salut

Lisa

Night of technology

Hello everyone,

Lisa here ;). Yesterday I was at the Night of Technology in Koblenz. I met a lot of new people who where interested in me and my demonstration. At the beginning we started with some problems: I wasn’t able to drive because of a wrong firmware in the repository. Luckily, after an update the problem could be solved. In the evening there was also a Scottish band playing right next to me. Not as good as my robot-interpretation of “I need a dollar”, but nevertheless a good performance.

Do you already know the Kinder Technik Ferien Camps? In short, it’s a holiday event for children, where they can work with technology.

Their team was also at the Night of Technology and of course, I had to visit them. Their attraction was a robotic arm, that could grab things out of a box and transport them into another box (as you see at the photos below). The kids loved it!

I hope everyone who visited me got a good impression of me and for those who were not able to come I can say that there will be upcoming chances in the future.

Greetings and with love

The real work started

Hello friends,

the first sprint started on monday. A lot of tasks were planned and assigned to students. Next week some of them have to be done and I hope I will get better functionalities ;-).

This week, we also had a social event with a lot of tasty food.

Yum yum! :-)

Do you remember the accident last week? Luckily this problem is solved now and the students could continue working on me. At the moment, Raphael is testing a new speech recognition, I hope he will have success with it. If there’s news in this regard we will report it.
