Do you wish to construct your own autonomous robot and participate in the international Field Robot Event? The CLAAS Foundation can help you – up to a maximum amount of 1500 Euro per team.
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) will be ranked higher.
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 damaged fourteen plants.
- Unfortunately, it is not allowed to put camping beds in the gym (accommodation, sports hall). There was still an error in the flyer. The updated version and more arrival information can be found under ‘Downloads‘. Air mattresses and sleeping pads are fine.
- Within the gym, it is not allowed to wear street shoes. Please, use shoes with soft soles inside the gym. For example, gym shoes or slippers are fine.
- Public transport for bus, shuttles, and trains (S-Bahn) is included in the BUGA-Ticket. Near the accommodation there are bus stops and at the main station. The BUGA shuttles go from the main station to the visitor entrances. But the closest entrance to the FRE location is the maintenance entrance (Hafenstr. 4). It is marked for the FRE.
Answer: The footway is about 800m. Here is a map. The entrance is a maintenance entrance and not an official visitor entrance. The tickets are valid for all entrances, but this one is directly beside the FRE location.
Answer: a map of the BUGA including the location of the event can be found under ‘Downloads’
Picture 4 – This is the actual layout of the row pattern. So there are no straight lines this year.
In task 3 and 4 we stated that robots are not permitted to touch or pass the obstacles. Does that mean robot can go around it, but not over if the robot is elevated enough?
Answer: robots must not pass the obstacles
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.
If I am a visitor of BUGA Heilbronn, can I also visit the Field Robot Event or do I have to registrate myself for the event? Is it free of charge for regular visitors? What kind of ticket do I need to join the Field Robot Event?
The Field Robot Event is a regular part of the BUGA an can be visited from every visitor of BUGA Heilbronn. A regular day ticket for the BUGA is enough to visit the Field Robot event for one day.
