Those product launches that made the front page. Our best tutorials and whitepapers. And the work of the R&D community that captured our imagination. This was 2021!

Competitions advanced the field of robotics

This year marked the end of two great competitions that aimed to accelerate the field of robotics in two edge scenarios; subterranean navigation and high speed driving. 

September hosted the finals of the DARPA Subterranean Challenge, a competition that searched for novel approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments during time-sensitive combat operations or disaster response scenarios. DARPA first announced its Subterranean (SubT) Challenge in 2018 to support open source robotics.

Team CERBERUS was the winner of this three-year-long subterranean challenge! 

October hosted the finals of the Indy Autonomous Challenge. Nine teams raced in Indy to see who was the fastest. A total of 21 universities from 9 countries competed, programming Dallara AV-21 racecars to win and take home $1.5M in prizes.
