The competition scene is more joyful _ (: contest "∠) _
recently, human athletes are competing in ice and snow in Pyeongchang, and robots are not to be left behind, and they are also skiing:
February 12, the robot skiing competition was held at the ski resort not far from the Pyeongchang Olympic venue. A total of eight teams from universities, research institutes and companies took part in the challenge.
the competition requires robots to be at least 50 centimeters tall. they must stand on their legs, have independent power systems, and have bent knees and elbows. These robots slide down from the top of the slope and use their own cameras /sensors to identify various objects in the field and determine how to turn.

this is not an official event of the Olympic Games, but it is still very interesting. After all, humans love to watch robots wrestle. The following is a complete report video:
