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 the rescue robot team in the 2018 RoboCup Robot World Cup of China and the 2018 National Robot Development Forum conducted by the GeekPie team of undergraduate students of the School of Information and the postgraduate MARZ team.

      The 2018 RoboCup Robot World Cup of China Competition and the 2018 National Robotics Development Forum were held inShaoxing City, Zhejiang Province from April 11th to 15th. The competition has attracted 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 professional groups and youth groups, among which professional teams are equipped with 11 competition items in four major events of football, rescue, industry and family services. Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, ZhejiangUniversity, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Nanjing University, National University of Defense Technology and many other famous colleges and universities participated in the competition.

      Our team members are supported by Prof. Sören Schwertfeger’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's various performances within five days for each item of the rescue robot teamproject: Multi-stage control manipulators; modification and testing of robotic car wheels and chassis in order to increase the capacity of narrow roads; to demonstrate dexterous operation performance, there is also an overview of integrated remote control functions, in addition to elevated ramps, obstaclestairs, and autonomy. Competencies and other aspects of the comprehensive assessment of the scores of various projects.

      Finally, under five days of hard work, the undergraduate 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 robotic applications. It was found in August 2014 by Prof. Sören Schwertfeger of the School of Information Science and Technology of ShanghaiTech University. Thel ab 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 Innovation Center of Shanghai University of Science and Technology is centered on the cultivation of talents for innovation and entrepreneurship. It links various disciplines and both inside and outside the school. It strives to become a fertileground for students to create innovations, create workshops and entrepreneurial engines in the environment and health, connection and wisdom, life and entertainment. , dreams and the future under the four themes to help students better achieve innovation and entrepreneurship.
