Field Robot Event 2023 in Slovenia!
From 12th to 15th of June 2023! We are happy to announce that the 20th Field Robot Event will be organised by the University of Maribor, Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences and will take place in Hoče, Slovenia. We hope that again many international teams will join us! More information will be published soon.
Overall field winner: FREDT!
This year, for the first time, the result of the freestyle task was included in the overall ranking of the field tasks. Team FREDT was very successful with their robot Helios evo. They won the overall field prize. The second prize went to Carbonite and ATH Rover came in third. Overall results field tasks
Overall simulation winner: FloriBot!
In this first hybrid version of the international Field Robot event, team FloriBot was very successful. They won the overall prize for simulation. The second prize went Carbonite and Kamaro came in third. Overall results simulation tasks
Helios evo wins Freestyle task
In the Freestyle task all teams decided to present there idea in the field. Team FREDT with there robot Helios evo won, Acorn became second and ATH Rover third. Results freestyle task
Carbonite wins Field Sensing & Mapping task
In the field this year’s Sensing & Mapping task had an additional task requiring robots to remove 5 cans and place them outside the crop on the headland. Carbonite won because it managed to deliver all cans to the headland, Bullseye became second with 4 cans and CERES II third. Results of the Sensing and […]
FloriBot wins Simulation Sensing & Mapping task
In the sensing and mapping task, the robots scout for five weeds and five cans in the field. It was one of the most difficult tasks in the 2022 competition. Only 3 teams managed to earn points. Winner FloriBot detected six out of ten. Kamaro became second and CERES II third. Results Sensing & Mapping in simulation
CERES II wins Field Navigation task
In the Field Navigation task, CERES II managed to hit no plants and drove 50 meters in the field within the limited time of 3 minutes. HELIOS evo won the second prize. FloriBot finished in third place. Results Field Navigation
Carbonite wins Simulation Navigation task
The winner of the Navigation task in simulation of the international Field Robot event is Carbonite. They managed to drive 142 meters in a virtual field in 3 minutes, with damaging 13 plants. The second place went to CERES II, and Kamaro came in third. Results Navigation task.
