A Quick Read of the Rules Document

Is worth a minute or two of your time. Just some key points-

The location of the targeted security compound is in the Hesamic Republic of Nari (yep)

The intelligence the mission is based on came from a mole (who's untimely death is the reason for the mission- ouch!)

The comunication from the mole has some interesting translation issues not uncommon in these types of operations (the guard shack is occupied by an unmarried guard- single guard)

There will be unexpected variations from the mole described set-up that must be accounted for (cabinets, chairs, desks moved around)

There is no requirement for self destruct (probably a mistake...)

This robotic competition is just great. Its like challenging human intelligence and of course technology. Its fun and challenge at the same time. Wish we could see some of these videos of competing participants.


This reminds me of humanoid communication robot Kirobo, launched by Japan. Its a chatting robot to give company to the astronaut. The report say they want to see how non human gives company to the people and gives emotional support to people who are isolated in space for long periods.

I guess time will come when everyone can dream of having a robot :-)

This is great!  This is indeed student-learning.

@Susan Rambo Car chases, a la OJ Simpson, could be conducted by an army of drones.

One other interesting omission from the rules is a requirement that the flash drive be readable when it is recovered. This goes to Tom's earlier comment that a magnet is not necessarily the best retrieval strategy, but since there is no requirement that the drive be readable it is probably a good choice. We may be training the next generation of lawyers as well as engineers and spys...

This is really cool. I saw a presentation on UAVs at Autotestcon 2012 that really got me interested in this kind of thing. I wrote a post about an UAV shaped like a hummingbird on UBM Future Cities, with apps being search and rescue and surveillance.

Wow. Thanks for the link to the UAV hummingbird. Nature still provides the best designs -- and the best camouflage.

Yes, except that we invented DIGITAL instead of SPIKING communication - the preferred way nature computes. I think in 100 years, digital will be gone and we will begin to compute like nature.

These types of camouflaged devices will bring up all kinds of privacy issues I'm sure.

Fascinating. I'd like to know more about spiking communication. Digital does seem limited. Just from what I can see from Wikipedia, it makes me think those helmets that transmit knowledge directly to the brain in sci-fi films and tv shows might be possible 100 years from now.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
