The international RoboCup community fosters the development of intelligent robots by defining and executing competitions that are used by scientists and students from all over the world to test and demonstrate their robots in attractive, realistic scenarios.
See for yourself what RoboCup teams have achieved in the past 21 years. Meet more than 3,500 dedicated scientists and developers from more than 40 countries. Be inspired by the contests, and become part of the RoboCup network
Today, RoboCup has a variety of leagues to compete;
RoboCup Soccer, is separated Humanoid, Standard Platform, Middle Size, Small Size and Simulation.
First held at RoboCup, this competition features autonomous mobile robots.
With researchers as participants, the event also serves as an educational and entertainment opportunity for the public to enjoy learning about cutting-edge science and technologies.
RoboCup Industrial, is separated RoboCup Logistics and RoboCup@Work.
RoboCup Rescue, is seperated Rescue Robot League and Rescue Simulation League.
Employing technologies developed from RoboCup Soccer, this initiative aims to promote simulations that will contribute toward development of rescue strategies based on earthquake and other large-scale disaster scenarios and to promote the development of autonomous robots for use in rescue efforts at disaster sites.
The target here is to apply technologies developed from RoboCup Soccer to people’s everyday lives.
In the belief that such technologies will find use in the kitchen or living room, they will be evaluated in competition form regarding how the robots cooperate with human beings to complete various tasks.
RoboCupJunior, is separated Soccer, Rescue and Onstage
Competition themes include those that will stimulate children’s curiosity and inquiring minds and encourage them to try robot design and production.
This gives children an opportunity to experience cooperative learning so they can obtain the necessary basics to underpin the next generation.
