Jacobs Robotics is one of ten teams that qualified for the SpaceBot Cup that is organized by the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) and financed by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).
The SpaceBot Cup is a very ambitious competition where mobile robots have to explore a planetary surface with a high degree of autonomy. The robots do not only have to autonomously navigate through the environment but they are also expected to find objects, pick them up, and to assemble them completely on their own. The team has about half a year to develop a complete system. The project started in March 2013. The final competition where all ten teams have to demonstrate their solutions will take place beginning of November 2013.
