The RoboCup@Home league aims to develop service and assistive robot technology with high relevance for future personal domestic applications. It is the largest international annual competition for autonomous service robots and is part of the RoboCup initiative. A set of benchmark tests is used to evaluate the robots’ abilities and performance in a realistic non-standardized home environment setting. Focus lies on the following domains but is not limited to: Human-Robot-Interaction and Cooperation, Navigation and Mapping in dynamic environments, Computer Vision and Object Recognition under natural light conditions, Object Manipulation, Adaptive Behaviors,[+]Read More
Robots target work-related challenges as in a workplace, warehouse and the manufacturing Industry. The two industrial leagues are:
The RoboCup@Work is the newest league in RoboCup, targeting the use of robots in work-related scenarios. The robots in this league utilize proven ideas and concepts from other RoboCup competitions to tackle open research challenges in industrial and service robotics. With the introduction of this league RoboCup opens up to communities researching both classical and innovative robotics scenarios with very high relevance for the robotics industry.[+]Read More
Robot rescue challenge assists first responders in assessing an emergency situation such as searching for potential victims and provide an automated map of an environment with uneven terrain, stairs and navigating through doorways. Rescue simulation is a disaster response challenge with multiple agents in a virtual scenario. The leagues in RoboCup Rescue are Robot and Simulation.
The two sub-leagues for Simulation are Agent Simulation and Infrastructure and Virtual Robot which can be explained as:[+]Read More
The main focus of the RoboCup competitions is the game of football/soccer, where the research goals concern cooperative multi-robot and multi-agent systems in dynamic adversarial environments. All robots in this league are fully autonomous. The five sub-leagues in RoboCup Soccer include:
