The CNI team (Janis Tiemann, Fabian Eckermann and Christian Wietfeld) won first prize in the "Indoor Mobile Robot Localization" category within the framework of IPIN Indoor Localization Competition at the International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN). We are very pleased with this success in our first participation in the competition! At the same time, two scientific contributions to the work created in the context of SFB 876 and CPS.HUBs / NRW were presented at the conference. The conference was held in Alcalá de Henares / Madrid / Spain.

Aim of this year's EvAAL competition was to locate a robot with a previously unknown trajectory. Each participant had a set-up time of approx. 45min and had to hand in the robot systems positioning results within 2min after the drive. Four aluminum posts were available for mounting the positioning system. The positioning surface covered a range of 12m x 6m. At the beginning, the participants were informed of the coordinates of three known points in order to calibrate the system. The sequence of participants was determined by lot method.
