Maryland Robot Wins Japanese Competition!
has taken first place in a Japanese Robotics competition, beating over
110 Japanese competitors. Lancelot is a small autonomous robot built by
a team of undergraduates under the guidance of AMRL's laboratory director,
Dr. Julio K. Rosenblatt,
and mechanical engineering professor Dr.
Details of the victory can be found in the August
6, 1997 Washington Post and in an article from IEEE Intelligent Systems*,
Jan/Feb 1998: Jousting in Japan (pdf)
by Julio Rosenblatt.
Congratulations to Julio and Greg!
