After three test blocks, about half of the teams in all three sub-leagues advanced to the 2nd round of the competition.
One new challenge in this second round involved a restaurant task. In this task, the robots left their controlled environments in the @Home arena and took over the restaurant at the venue. The robots were asked to detect and approach people sitting in the tables and ask for their orders. Then the robots had to navigate the environment to fetch their order and present it back to them.
The second round finishes this afternoon, determining which teams will advance to the finals.
