Team Michigan wins worldwide robotics competition

BRISBANE, Australia -- With a squad of 14 robots that worked together autonomously in a complicated mapping exercise, the University of Michigan's "Team Michigan" has won the inaugural Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge (MAGIC 2010) in Australia.


A joint initiative of Australia's Defence Science and Technology Organisation and the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command's Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center, MAGIC 2010 spanned more than two years with a stated goal of furthering the development of robot teams that could operate autonomously in dangerous situations, keeping Soldiers out of harm's way. Officials held the competition Nov. 8-13.
