A quick update from the challenge now that things have settled down. Six teams arrived with robots on site and worked furiously for 2 days building, coding, debugging, fixing, and practicing. On Saturday, 5 of 6 were able to get their robot to the field to try a run and all departed the platform in the direction of the sample!
In the end, no team was able to collect a sample during an official run, therefore no team completed Level 1 or tried Level 2.
Today, teams are practicing or packing up to head out. We will post some links to the various media coverage and photos of the event soon.
