About the Challenge
Would you like to receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Germany to visit the new KUKA Udacity Learning Lab at KIT? You can, by entering the KUKA Robotics Challenge! The winner will also get to attend the NVIDIA GTC Conference in Munich.
KUKA, KIT and Udacity have partnered to offer this incredible opportunity.
Participants will compete in a race to navigate a real KUKA iiwa robot, equipped with a Schunk gripper and Roboception camera, through a physical 2D maze. Your code will search for a path, and navigate the robot through the maze by commanding 2D positions and an orientation angle to get around corners in the fastest time possible.
To be eligible, you must be enrolled in or graduated from the Udacity Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree program and be a U.S. resident. Submissions will be open from August 25th - August 28th.
Winners will be subject to terms and Official Rules.
