SIST Undergraduate and Master student won prize in 2018 RoboCup of China

      Flexible driving, shuttle through narrowlanes, visual algorithm to find two-dimensional codes and corresponding iconsignals in narrow corners. The robot car successfully simulated the security ofthe hostage represented by the puppet from the room simulated on the side ofthe track.

      This is the wonderful performance of therescue robot team in the 2018 RoboCup Robot World Cup of China and the 2018National Robot Development Forum conducted by the GeekPie team of undergraduatestudents of the School of Information and the postgraduate MARZ team.

      The 2018 RoboCup Robot World Cup of ChinaCompetition and the 2018 National Robotics Development Forum were held inShaoxing City, Zhejiang Province from April 11th to 15th. The competition hasattracted nearly 20 provinces, autonomous regions, municipalities, Hong Kongand Macao. 555 teams from 300 schools and institutions participated in thecompetition with 2,472 entrants. The competition is divided into professionalgroups and youth groups, among which professional teams are equipped with 11competition items in four major events of football, rescue, industry and familyservices. Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, ZhejiangUniversity, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Nanjing University, National Universityof Defense Technology and many other famous colleges and universitiesparticipated in the competition.

      Our team members are supported by Prof. SörenSchwertfeger’s guidance and the resources of the Shanghai University of Scienceand Technology Automation and Robotics Center and the Student Innovation Center.Then team members of our school made targeted adjustments to the robot'svarious performances within five days for each item of the rescue robot teamproject: Multi-stage control manipulators; modification and testing of roboticcar wheels and chassis in order to increase the capacity of narrow roads; todemonstrate dexterous operation performance, there is also an overview ofintegrated remote control functions, in addition to elevated ramps, obstaclestairs, and autonomy. Competencies and other aspects of the comprehensiveassessment of the scores of various projects.

      Finally, under five days of hard work, theundergraduate GeekPie team won the third prize of the RoboCup Rescue Robot Teamand the dexterous operation of the single event. During the competition,two teams won the approval and praise of the organizingcommittee and the applause of other participating teams.

      The Mobile Autonomous Robotic Systems Lab(MARS Lab) at ShanghaiTech University is dedicated to research on intelligentand novel algorithms, software and also hardware for various roboticapplications. It was found in August 2014 by Prof. Sören Schwertfeger of theSchool of Information Science and Technology of ShanghaiTech University. Thelab is dedicated to excellence in research and teaching in robotics and is partof the STAR Center. Additionally Prof. Schwertfeger and the MARS Lab are partof the Shanghai Institute of Fog Computing Technology (SHIFT).

      The Student InnovationCenter of Shanghai University of Science and Technology is centered on thecultivation of talents for innovation and entrepreneurship. It links variousdisciplines and both inside and outside the school. It strives to become a fertileground for students to create innovations, create workshops and entrepreneurialengines in the environment and health, connection and wisdom, life andentertainment. , dreams and the future under the four themes to help studentsbetter achieve innovation and entrepreneurship.
