ISS Match Details

The following tables show the official results of the ISS finals matches.

Notes:

1) The Red SPHERES moved to a random location and held it's position at the start of each match.

2) Two scores are shown for each run. The "test score" is the score from the satellites telemetry data reported on ISS and the "bonus score" is based on recorded observations of attempts at hooking called "swings"(missed the other hook) and "hits" (made contact with the other hook but did not successfully hook). Only two teams earned an ISS "test score> 1 by completing successful hooking. All other teams earned a test score =1.

3) The "ISS Visualization" link provides an animation of the match. The ISS Visualization is a visualization created using the Zero Robotics display of the motion of the satellites aboard the ISS based on the telemetry data (downloaded) from the satellites during the competition. It is a replay of what the satellites believe they were doing based on their estimation and internal code (including player code). Note that the data in the score boxes and the score that pops up on the visualization are not synchronized with the satellite motion. (The scoring and score box data is displayed far ahead of when the action actually occurs in the visualization)

4) The video clips are played at 4X speed

5)There were several teams that modified the PID controller gains this year. Unfortunately, the gains changes were not successful when running on the SPHERES hardware in the ISS for this competition. Therefore to give each of these teams a chance to attempt hooking the student modified gains were overridden during one run and default gains were applied instead.

6) The code for each of the finalist implementations will be posted in tables at the bottom of this page after the conclusion of on-going competitions.
