RoC-Ex: Robotic Cave Explorer
Unearth the truth about what happened in cave system #0393
Go on an expedition at the foothills of the Himalayas. Help a group of scientists scout out what appears to be an ancient cave system leading down to the centre of the Earth. With the help of advanced sensors, pilot your robot explorer to navigate dark tunnels, avoid obstacles, collect relics of aeons past and, hopefully, discover what happened to its predecessor. That is right, just a few days earlier, you made an initial attempt at uncovering the mysteries that lie in this unknown environment, but you lost communication with your first robot. What could have happened?
Join us for this introductory session, but feel free to play the game throughout the festival. We hope this event will give you all a hint on how exciting it can be to work with robots, especially when exploring mysterious environments.
This event is part of the UK-RAS Network Festival of Robotics (#RobotFest), a 7-day programme of events, competitions and activities for robot-lovers of all ages. The UK Festival of Robotics replaces the long-running and popular UK Robotics Week event.
