Stockholm 2016

Welcome to WASP Summer school 2016.

During the summer school you will be working in teams. You will be working towards solving a task at the end of the week. The final task of the team is to compete in a search and rescue operation where you need to identify different objects (QR tags, 2D, 3D objects) placed in the room and mark their 3-D coordinates in a map. The task can be performed by remote controlling the platforms. During the summer school you will work on ways to make the system more autonomous. At the end of the week we will arrange a friendly competition. The team which identifies more objects with greater autonomy wins the competition.

More details about the tasks and subtasks will be presented to you at the summer school.

The links below provide more information about the summer school.
