Introduction to ARGOS Challenge 2nd competition --Team AIR-K

ARGOS challenge is a robotics challenge that makes each team compete their robotics technologies of teleoperation or autonomous navigation in gas and oil site, organized by TOTAL. Our team, called AIR-K, attends to the competition. In this movie-clip, our motivation, approach to the competition, and results of the second competition are introduced.

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2011 camera view

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2011, we used soft wheels, and mounted gyroscope and gravity sensor to improve its navigation ability. We also attached a camera to record its navitagion scene. Finally, we won the 1st prize of the competition. The videoclip shows a filmed camera view mounted on the payload. (2011-09)

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2006

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to returna payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2006, we developed two simple dual-wheel mobile robots. One of the robots reached the goal, and we won the 1st prize of the competition. The videoclip shows a digest of the robot's motion. (2006-09)

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2007

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2007, we developed expandable wheels that were made by sponge material. It increases diameters of the wheels, and also it absurbs impact force of landing. In this year, parachute separation mechanism did not work well, so that the robot did not reach the goal. The videoclip shows a digest of our robot's motion. (2007-09)

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2008

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2008, we developed an slight-expandable wheels that were made by sponge material. It increases diameters of the wheels, and also, it absurbs impact force of landing. Using these wheels, we won the 1st prize of the competition. The videoclip shows a digest of our robot's motion.

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2009

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2009, we developed an expandable mechanism of wheels. It seemed to be very simple and reasonable, but it was too weak to perform long run. Therefore, the robot did not reach the goal. The videoclip shows a digest of our robot's motion. (2009-09)

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2010

Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2010, we improved expandable mechanism of wheels that were developed in ARLISS 2009, and won the 1st prize of the competition. The videoclip shows a digest of our robot's motion. (2010-09)
