The first competition was held in late June 2015, with the ARGOS Challenge teams meeting at the Lacq site in southwestern France.
It was an opportunity for the Air-K, Argonauts, Foxiris, Lio and Vikings teams to test their robots’ performance in the field. They had been working on their prototypes for more than a year.
Several tests were set for their robots: locating, reading and recording data at control points, notifying the operator if the measurements fell outside normal operating parameters, getting around unexpected obstacles and more. Did they succeed?
