French Cup of Robotics 2015 took place from 13th to 16th May in Ferté Bernard (France). This competition has been created in 1994 that gathers his participants around ludic challenge, scientific but also technical. Robots fought in real match technological during 90 seconds.
Good performances for the teams sponsored by BA Systèmes !
For the 2015 edition, BA Systèmes sponsored two teams. The Atlantronic team finish 49th out of 150 teams with only one robot and A.R.D team finished 8th. An excellent performance! Congrats !
Testimony of Jean-Baptiste Tredez for the team Altantronic :
“We are satisfied by the result. We took risks by putting wheels without hub to distinguish and it worked. Many teams came to our booth to talk about them. For lack of time we made a single robot instead of two possible but it has a prehension system really elaborate. Despite of this fact, we finished in the first third of the approved teams. Today we are missing hands to realize a main robot more original and more effective but also to build a secondary robot. So, do not hesitate to contact me to participate in the project 2016.”
Quentin Peyrègne for the A.R.D team :
“Our team is very happy of this eigth place. We had a robot “tri-turrets” it’s the same kinematics that the Venice Biennale. This year our main robot had a absolute localization by scanning the edges of the table, allowing it by odometry to revise its trajectory in real-time. We were the only team who developed this function. In spite of technical problem for the starting up we left in the last sixteen. An edition which offers beautiful perspectives for the next year.”
