Spotlight: Coders Wanted for Robotics Prize Challenge Offered by NIST

If you’re a coder with working knowledge of C++, Python and ROS, we have a prize challenge for you. It’s called the Agile Robotics for Industrial Automation Competition (ARIAC), hosted by the NIST.

The winnings: 

  • 1st place – $10,000 
  • 2nd place – $5,000 
  • 3rd place – $2,500 

Your goal: Develop software to manage different robots in a simulated environment that we’ve created at NIST, allowing the bots to work autonomously.

Along the way, the robots in this simulated factory floor space might run into a whole slew of challenges, from missing parts along the assembly line to visual blackouts and even antagonistic human co-workers. You won’t get that information in advance. 

Get the full details and get your submission in by April 26.
