Robot entries to the finals of ESA's Volare Space Robotics challenge.
Seven teams battled with their remote-control robots on a mock-up of the International Space Station. Their mission: to unload as much cargo from ESA’s Automated Transfer Vehicle as possible in a given time.
Students gave instructions wirelessly from the ‘control centre’ next door. Teams had already earned ‘multipliers’ during their preparation and documentation phase to increase their score and affect strategy in the finals.
