"Future Engineers" at BASELABS
How can you get started in software development for automated driving as a student? The "Future Engineers" of the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) category for building and programming autonomous driving robot cars showed us how it's done. Two teams from Chemnitz took part in the category last year and they made it to 1st and 3rd place at the German finals.
They are still impressed by the experiences full of inspiration and shared enthusiasm at the German final in Chemnitz and the world final in Dortmund.
The two teams visited the CADA partner company BASELABS last week to share their experiences. They presented their self-built robot car, which has a camera and lidar sensor. In return, Eric Richter, Director Technology Innovation at BASELABS and one of the founders gave insights into the technology of software development for automated driving and the further development of software products for sensor data fusion.
The "Future Engineers" teams had previously programmed Lego robots, either in AGs at their school, in Solaris or in the former RoboSchool at Chemnitz University of Technology, and are now involved in supervising other student AGs beyond their own participation. You don't have to know any programming language to get started in robot programming. The WRO categories are structured in such a way that you can already participate with simple block programming. This means that children and young people from the age of 8 can be introduced to the topics of robotics and programming in a playful way and become creative themselves.
Some of the CADA employees have also programmed Lego robots in the past or still do so today.
The tasks for the 2023 season are now online!
