Just got off the plane from Europe, and I'm ecstatic to say that our team MAGICIAN / WAMBOT has made it as one of the six finalists for the MAGIC 2010 competition. Our success will help put Perth, Western Australia on the map as a place for robotics research. ECU, UWA and Thales put together a massive engineering effort to complete the robots and we had strong support from our sponsors Thales, SICK, XSens, RTI, and plenty of help from Illiarc. DSTO has allowed us to release photos of the robots and the event now, so I'm glad to be able to share some pictures of the action.
If you see any news stories on the event or would like to help our team - don't hesitate to leave a comment below!
