[Testing]

Field tests!

🛠 Our partner CNRS recently carried out field tests in its premises and took advantage of the autumn sun 🌞. The RoboPlanet Crawler was used for experimental exercises (ultrawide-band localisation) but also mapping experiments. Ultrasonic localisation and mapping were also performed on the acoustic side 🔌 💻.  
The goal of this field test was to get everything ready for the first on-site test next month.
