(CATEC) and the
Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon has won Challenge 3 of the MBZIRC International Robotics
Competition, which can be considered the most important competition in the
world of robotics
.

 

The General Coordinator of Iberian Robotics (“Team Leader”) has been Professor at the University of Seville Anibal Ollero. Professor Angel Rodriguez Castaño from the GRVC Robotics Laboratory at the School of Engineers at the University of Seville, Antidio Viguria from CATEC and Alberto Vale from IST were the coordinators of the work in those institutions.

 

During the preparation of the competition, as well as on the days of official tests and competition in Abu Dhabi, the great determination and capacity for the development of robotic hardware and software of the 12 members of the GRVC Robotics Laboratory, the 6 members, has been demonstrated. of the CATEC and the 6 of the IST that have achieved such an important achievement.
