DARPA Subterranean Challenge

Results

Teams in the Tunnel Circuit completed four total runs, two 60-minute runs on each of two courses, Experimental and Safety Research. The courses varied in difficulty and included 20 artifacts each. Teams earned points by correctly identifying artifacts within a five-meter accuracy. The final score was a total of each team’s best score from each of the courses. In instances of a points tie, team rank was determined by (1) earliest time the last artifact was successfully reported, averaged across the team’s best runs on each course; (2) earliest time the first artifact was successfully reported, averaged across the team’s best runs on each course; and (3) lowest average time across all valid artifact reports, averaged across the team’s best runs on each course.

 

The final scores were as follows:

25 Explorer, DARPA-funded
11 CoSTAR (Collaborative SubTerranean Autonomous Resilient Robots), DARPA-funded
10 CTU-CRAS, self-funded winner of the $200,000 Tunnel Circuit prize
9 MARBLE (Multi-agent Autonomy with Radar-Based Localization for Exploration), DARPA-funded
7 CSIRO Data61, DARPA-funded
5 CERBERUS (CollaborativE walking & flying RoBots for autonomous ExploRation in Underground Settings), DARPA-funded
2 NCTU (National Chiao Tung University), self-funded
2 Robotika, self-funded
1 CRETISE (Collaborative Robot Exploration and Teaming In Subterranean Environments), DARPA-funded
1 PLUTO (Pennsylvania Laboratory for Underground Tunnel Operations), DARPA-funded
0 Coordinated Robotics, self-funded
