1st Day Results

So we've just had our second run of the day and the robot's still in one piece...ish

1st run went ok. We managed to find two victims but lost time attempting to navigate the difficult rubble terrain.

2nd run started much better; finding two victims in the first 8 minutes, but a communications failure (broken antenna) resulted in significant lag and eventually complete loss of connection with the robot. Slightly dissapointing however finding two victims is still a good score.

Overall first day of competing has gone well, everyone's in good spirits and we seem to be outperforming some of our rivals. If the winds behind us hopefully tomorrow we will be climbing the leaderboard further :)

Here's a video of the first run, the second will be uploaded in an hour or two: [Edit: here it is]
