All phd students and postdocs of the LEAD project worked together during a one-week hackathon to develop joint research. The hackathon used the RoboCup Logistics League (RCLL) which serves as one application scenario for the project. The students got an introduction into the use case itself and the software architecture and tools that are used at Graz University of Technology to face the RCLL challenge. Aligned with the topics of the 3 sub-projects (SP), students selected related problems and worked on them in small teams.
