ZMART made a record in the IARC history

2018年8月27日,经国际空中机器人大赛(IARC)委员会评定,浙江大学代表队ZMART以综合评分第一、比赛成绩第一,获得IARC第七代任务世界冠军,赢得2万美元比赛奖金。浙江大学成为继斯坦福大学(1995),卡耐基梅隆大学(1997),柏林工大(2000),佐治亚理工(2008),麻省理工(2009),清华大学(2013)之后IARC第七个世界冠军得主。自此第七代任务结束,IARC比赛进入第八代任务。

"Mission 7 took a monumental leap by requiring autonomous aerial robots to interact with and control autonomous ground robots. Teams were tasked with developing systems to herd ground robots out one end of an arena in the absence of 3D cues such as walls. The ground robots could only be interacted with by touch. A top touch would command a 45° clockwise turn and a blocking action would result in a 180° turn. To complicate matters, the ground robots do a 180° turn every 20 seconds and add up to 15 degrees of trajectory noise every 5 seconds. The ground robots also impact one another and quickly devolve into non-deterministic travel. In the midst of the arena were four obstacle robots to complicate navigation and obstacle avoidance. The aerial robots had to dynamically determine a best course of action to keep the ground robots from exiting on three of four sides of the arena. In the top performances, which were replicated multiple times, the Zhejiang University team showed that its autonomous aerial robot could track individual ground robots, redirect them in either 45° or 180° increments while at the same time staying within the arena boundaries and avoiding the mobile obstacles circulating within the arena."
