Since we have participated in more traditional robotics competitions than you can imagine, we wanted to do something special for our 100th prize. As I had recently finished the CS231N course, I felt really eager to apply machine learning algorithms to robotic tasks.
Electromobility is a six-month long autonomous driving competition organised by Continental Automotive in Iasi,
Since it is Christmas time and the entire city has become more festive, we thought of decorating our lab a little. And what better way to do it than with a “small” and “simple” project?
The goal: to make the prizes shelves as shiny, colorful and smart as possible.
