I, Vishal Kumar Singh, am a 1st year Computer Science and Engineering student at Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Jain University in Bangalore, Karnataka, India.
I have intermediate knowledge of Java and C++. I want to contribute to this community and willing to learn the skills and enhance knowledge required to make this happen.
Would love to know where do I begin with. Thank You !
Mr. Leimbach asked me to talk with you about a new simulation.
I was wondering whether you would be interested to include it in ORL.
We build it from scratch using TypeScript.
We plan to have a test server running in near future (at the moment we don't have a domain name)
Thank you very much for your interest in this topic!
Below we summarized our thoughts and goals:
Due to the current situation, our in-person robot competition got cancelled and we decided to do an online event.
For the first event, we used the current simulation of ORL and implemented some challenges. This was not an easy task, because we were required to learn the project structure from scratch.
The missing determinism made it very hard to score each submission reliably.
Each time we ran the simulation it would produce a different outcome (robot position / score / ...).
Also, the simulation is not very realistic, and we thought it could use some user interface improvements.
