Robot Competitions Kick Innovation in Cognitive Systems and Robotics

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics RoCKIn Robot Challenge Robot competitions have proved to be an effective instrument to foster scientific research and push the state of the art in a field. Also, thanks to these competitions, young students are attracted to science and engineering disciplines, and the relevance of robotics research is demonstrated to citizens. The goal of RoCKIn is to speed up the progress towards smarter robots through scientific competitions. Two challenges have been selected due to their high relevance and impact on Europe’s societal and industrial needs: domestic service robots (RoCKIn@Home) and innovative robot applications in industry (RoCKIn@Work).  RoCKIn introduces new and prevailing research topics, like natural interaction with humans or networking mobile robots with sensors in ambient environments.
