For task 3 and task 4 competing teams should provide 3 images depicting a deer, a human or something else. The images should have the background removed (white) and be printed on a A3 sheet of paper. The following example images depict three possible cases – a deer, human, something else:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
