Human Swarm 2024

08.06.2024 -

Thanks for attending the Human Swarm event 2024. Here are some of the results. Altogether 120 participated in the swarm. 


Colors: 32 Blue, 30 Pink, 29 Yellow and 29 Green 

Shapes: 35 Square, 23 Triangles, 18 Pentagon and 44 Circles 


Task 1: Collective Perception - Color (Which color is in majority?)

The swarm converged to green - Not correct (This could be because the two colors yellow and green were very similar). 

Task 2: Collective perception - Shape (Which shape is in majority?)

The swarm converged to circle - Correct 

Task 3: Sorting the colors 

Task 4: Sorting the shapes

Task 5: Sorting the numbers 

Task 6: Scrabble: Very long words are built.

More analysis and videos will follow soon.

robOTTO at Consumenta 2023


Our RoboCup@Work team “robOTTO” participated in the 1st @Work Innovation Open in Nuremberg, embedded into the Consumenta Fair 2023. The team dominated their competition and finished first after four competition runs. Additionally, the team won the navigation challenge with a time of two minutes for navigating the arena. This is even more impressive considering that the team was only present with four team members because right now, lectures are going on, which collided with the competition.
