@Home is on a roll

5 July 2023

Our @Homers are in full concentration preparing for the challenges that Hero, the Toyota Human Support Robot, will carry out completely independently. The field of participants is extremely strong, with a total of 11 participating teams. Among these teams are formidable competitors such as the teams from South Korea and Japan. Points will have to be collected in all challenges to be able to defend the world title.

Today the world model has been taught to the robot: the environment in which Hero will perform his tasks is now known to the robot, so that Hero can independently find his way in a constructed living environment and can deal with accidental changes such as a shifted table in the living room. That world model is a prerequisite for Hero to understand what it is doing.

Later that day, the participating robots will be inspected to see if they comply with the regulations. For example, it is not allowed to make drastic changes to the robot hardware. The robot software, on the other hand, is for the most part free to develop yourself. For our @Homers, that is of course also where the interest and competences lie 🙂

Our team is looking forward to the inspection with confidence, as well as to the upcoming challenges for the competition!
