GEORG is the Rescue Robot from the Freescale Robotics Lab of the Georg-Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences of Nuremberg (Germany). During last week's, the student team led by Prof. Stefan May have attended the Worldwide RoboCup finals in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) and scored #12. Quite a good result for GEORG as it is it's first entry into the world finals.


The Robotics team has been working since last year porting ROS (Robotic Operating System) to the Freescale i.MX platform to save space and power vs. an onboard PC. They are also working in developing distributed ROS computing systems using Freedom boards as modules.
