Robothon: Beach CleanUp Challenge

The protection of our planet from pollution is one of the most pressing challenges.
Regarding this topic, cleaning up coastal lines is a very important and challenging task that has to be carried out manually by workers.
Thanks to the University of TUM, I had the possibility to participate at Robothon competition whose subject this year was to implement a robotic platform to help cleaning the beaches.
The task was to autonomously sort various objects by first, identifying the object, classifying where it belongs and finally placing it accordingly.
At the moment, this is a really important topic in the field of research. Me and my team were really satisfied about the results because we succeeded in a challenge that involved different domains of knowledge such as control, robotics, machine learning.
