DLR SpaceBot-Cup: ARTEMIS - Autonomous Rover Team for Exploration and Manipulation

The SpaceBot Cup is a robotic competition, offered by the DLR Space Administration. The challenge of the competition is to develop a robotic system which is able to perform tasks that are derived from a typical exploration scenario on a planetary surface. The system has to semi-autonomously locate, identify, and transport objects in a difficult terrain to finally integrate them into an overall system. The competition will be held in November 2013 under the auspices of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. A total of 10 teams will compete. The team "Artemis" of the DFKI RIC and the University of Bremen intends to solve the challenges of the competition with a heterogeneous team consisting of two exploration robots (see figure).
