Robo Magellan Competition

Robo-Magellan is a robotics competition emphasizing autonomous navigation. The competition is held outside over various pedestrian terrain and obstacles, such as park benches, curbs, trees, bushes, hills, people, etc.. Robots have to navigate between predefined coordinates to an ending point. These predefined coordinates are given as GPS coordinates for the robot to use prior to the competition. The ultimate goal is an orange cone. Points are scored according to how well the robot reached the coordinates and the final orange cone.


Robo-Magellan was started by the Seattle Robotics Society (SRS). Last year (2007) there was only one robot (Intrepid) which finished the course. The contest is basically a scaled down version of the DARPA Grand Challenge.
