RoboCup German Open is held in Magdeburg, Germany from April 23-26, 2015. Robolit took part in the Rescue League organizing committee to assist with judging the competitions. In the course of the events a new evaluation method for the best in class manipulation event is developed and used in conducting the competitions on the last day of the event.
The RoboCup 2014 Finals was held in Joao Pessoa Brazil from July 21st to July 25th of 2014. This event brought together robotics leagues from around the world in a competition to determine the best team for the league they participated in. Each league had a number of participating teams at the college level. The event was designed to promote technological progress in the field of robotics by displaying first hand what designs were performing in what skill level.
Robolit participated in the design and implementation of the “Rescue Robot League”. This league created a disaster like scenario where robot teams scored points based on the number of “victims” they could find and identify. A referee and a judge ran the competition, at least one of which was provided by Robolit.
The German Open for RoboCup was held in Magdeburg Germany from April 1st to April 6th of 2014. The event was designed to allow college and high school level robotics teams to practice as well as earn their place at the RoboCup finals held later in 2014. The event consists of various leagues spanning simulation soccer competitions to legged full size robot games.
Our focus is on the Rescue League which aims to foster innovation in search and rescue robotics. Robolit along side of NIST participated in the design, set-up, and administration for the RoboCup German Open Rescue League. Tasked primarily with judging during the students runs.
Robolit continues to play a crucial role in the RoboCupRescue Robot League, in support of the wider DHS-NIST-ASTM International Standard Test Methods for Response Robotsproject, with a Robolit research scientist traveling to RoboCup World Cup 2013 in Eindhoven as one of the members of the Organizing Committee to direct and supervise arena construction, gather data, and referee the competition. This event is an important outreach component of the overall project, providing exposure to leading research institutes from around the world in this crucial area.
SSRR Summer School 2012 has started with the attendance of 69 researchers from 16 countries and 32 groups at the Drita Hotel Resort and Spa. Detailed information about the venue and the program can be found at the official event site. We thank our financial and technical sponsors for making this event happen.
