-------------------------- 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 competitions 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 areas.
--------------------- 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.
