COVID-19 Update

The RoboTHOR challenge at CVPR 2020 involves deploying navigation models onto the LocoBot and running it through the physical RoboTHOR environment. This physical environment is located at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2) offices in Seattle. Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, all employees of AI2 are currently working from home and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. This prevents us from running experiments on the physical robot. As a result, the RoboTHOR challenge at CVPR 2020 will only involve the simulated scenes. The final winners will be chosen based on performance in the simulated scenes in the Test-Challenge set. The component of the RoboTHOR challenge involving the physical robot will be held at a later date, to be determined as we get more clarity on the COVID-19 stay at home order. We wish you all the best of health, through this challenging time.
