- The Rover robot will be in full exploration mode: it will have to detect the positions of the sites on Mars, find its way to them and will have to avoid obstacles without knowing their positions in advance. As always, the rover must visit the maximum number of sites in the minimum time.
- The Competition is open to *anyone* aged 15+: researchers, engineers, students, professors, makers, everyone is welcome to give it a shot!
- The finale will take place at INNOROBO on May 25th in Paris, France.
