About RoboCup@Home
RoboCup@Home is a new league inside the RoboCup competitions. It
focuses on real-world applications and human-machine interaction with
autonomous robots. The aim is to foster the development of useful
robotic applications that can assist humans in everyday life.
The league consists of a series of independent tests. The test scenario
will be a home environment. The tests will change over the years to
become more advanced. Performance measurement is based on a score
derived from competition rules and evaluation by a jury.
RoboCup@Home will be held for the first time at the RoboCup
2006 in Bremen.
Test Criteria
RoboCup@Home is a framework consisting of tests increasing in
complexity over the years. Criteria of the tests are listed below.
The tests should:
- include human machine interaction
- be socially relevant
- be application directed/oriented
- be scientifically challenging
- be easy to set up and low in costs
- be simple and have self-explaining rules
- be interesting to watch
- take a small amount of time
Suggestions for new tests or changes in existing tests should fulfill
as many of these criteria as possible. In the first year (2006 in
Bremen) there will be four tests with focus on different research
Call for Contribution
Interested research groups are asked to contribute in the discussion
about the implementation of the proposed tests, the suggestion of
additional tests, the forming of joined teams and the possible
participation in the league via the RoboCup@Home email list. Interested
groups are asked to pre-register until the 28th of October 2005. Final
rules will be published after the pre-registration phase. Further
