FarmBeast showed a so-called automatic tool changer in the freestyle task. This is an implement with various tools such as a mower and a laser cutter. Depending on the task that has to be performed, a tool holder takes one of the tools and moves it to the object to be treated.
Helios evo and Carbonite ended up with the same number of points (105) and also TAFR and Dschubba had the same number of points (97) If two or more teams have the same number of points for the overall ranking, the team with the better placements during all four tasks (1, 2, 3 and 4) […]
The biggest robot in this year’s competition has managed to win this task without damaging any plant! It sprayed five weeds. The much smaller Helios evo damaged just one plant, sprayed three weeds and became second. The third place went to The Great Cornholio who sprayed the same number of plants as the winner but […]
In task 3, the robots scout for weeds and obstacles in the field. The great Cornholio detected the most; eight out of fourteen. Dschubba became second and Carbonite third.
In Task 2, newcomer Ceres has done an excellent job. They didn’t need manual correction or damaged any plants. The experienced Helios evo was slightly faster and won this task. Maizerunner finished in third place.
They did it again! Just as last year Carbonite wins the first task. The second place was for Floribot and Ceres became third.

In task 3 and 4 we stated that obstacles can be in between rows or in the headland. Does headland mean outside of the rows? Answer: We will not put obstacles or weeds in the headland.
Because of some questions about task 3, we clarified the rules and assessment of task 3, Field mapping. The new version of the task descriptions can be found in Downloads. The changes are marked yellow/green. There are no straight rows this year. The actual layout of the row pattern is shown in this picture.
We extended the registration deadline by 1 week. So the new deadline is Friday, May 24th.
Registered teams are asked to provide us with a short description of their robot including a photo for the program booklet (technical specifications, special features etc.). A text template is now available under ‘Downloads’. We stress the point, that you will not be allowed to participate when you do not provide the short description latest […]
