The RoboChamps website has is just gone live.
Robochamps is a new challenge built using the Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio V2 CTP. It will provide a number of different simulated worlds each containing a particular robot. The challenge for coders of all levels is to use the Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio V2 CTP (Runs on VS 2008 C# Express upwards) to control the robot to complete tasks. The simulated worlds score your robot’s performance and enable you to submit your score to the global league table! The highest score for each challenge can win real robots.
Perhaps you should as your customers are thinking about it. In Mary Jo Foley's blog she wrote, "Businesses have discovered that the Microsoft Robotics Studio includes technology that is suited for programming multicore, distributed systems. Specifically, businesses are quite interested in the concurrency and coordination (CCR) and decentralized software services (DSS) runtimes that are currently embedded in the robotics toolkit, Trower said. These runtimes are part of the evolving multicore/distributed programming model into which Microsoft and other tech vendors starting to plow lots of money and development work."
