April 2015 - First steps of the robots in the competition site

The Argos challenge teams were looking forward to this opportunity to test their robots on the UMAD competition site (the unit provided for the event and managed by Sobegi) at Lacq.
 

After holding technical meetings there in September 2014, the competing teams returned April 13th 2015, for five days of intense preparation before the first competition planned for June 2015.

Each team was assigned a dedicated space that was quickly transformed into a futurist-looking workshop, where powerful computers competed for space with drills, electronics and screwdrivers.

The schedule was tight, but the atmosphere was studious and friendly. The teams moved from tests at the UMAD, to construction in the workshop and to meetings. From the very first day, the robots went through initial tests to pass the mandatory homologation phase to allow robot testing on the UMAD where the missions will be performed during the competitions. Weight, height and width were checked, as were the safety requirements such as the emergency stop and anti-collision system. Three members of the jury made an appearance in the middle of the week to meet the teams and question them on the progress of their project.

The contestants now have all the cards in hand to present a functioning robot at the first round of the competition to be held from June 22 to 26.
