Ram Shed Challenge

The Ram Shed challenge was a media-event for the MAGIC 2010 competition. It was our first chance to see all the other teams robots and a chance to see them all at work. Our robots performed very well one the day and navigated the maze better than any other team, the entire open section of the maze was explored fully autonomously requiring no human interaction at any point. All of this despite the fact our wifi gear was mounted outside and failed during the rain, after a few minutes we were able to replace it and continue our mapping operations!
The photos show our robots at the starting line, followed by them moving off in the starting arena, then navigating the maze, and finally the prize.
A fabulous effort by our team, and I'm extremely proud of our achievements on this day!
