The sixth editition of Robotour will take place on September 17, 2011 in Vienna, Austria. The task of Robotour 2011 is to deliver a payload to a previously unknown destination inside a park in Vienna. A map of the park (Open Street Map) and the coordinates of the destination will be available. The robots must be fully autonomous and may not leave the roads in the park.
The objective of the Robotour is to encourage the development of robots capable of transporting paylaods compeltely autonomously. The sixth year of this contest will be a next step towards smarter and more autonomous robots. In contrast to the previous years, the robots will only get a map and the coordinates of the destination. Therefore the robots have to be able to navigate around the park even if they have never been there before. Robot successfully solving this task should be able to navigate in any park with a corresponding map.
Further information can be found at robotika.cz (founder of Robotour).
