On 26 September CGS participated in a Robot Competition in Brno, Czech Republic, The Robotour 2009.
The competition took place within the Park Lužzánky. It was organized by Mathematics and Physics Faculty of Praha University. The competition goal was autonomous navigation within park paths using a developed navigation alghoritm.
The CGS Robotics Team was composed of two CGS researchers and a Scuola Sant’Anna student.
Other CGS researchers worked on the robotic platform for Robotour.
