What is RoboCup at Home?

The RoboCup at Home league targets development and deployment of autonomous
service and assistive robot technology being essential for future personal
domestic applications.  It is is part of the international RoboCup initiative
and the biggest service and home robotic competition world-wide. The
RoboCup at Home tournaments are organized in well defined test scenarios, which
are used to evaluate the robots? abilities and performance in a realistic
non-standardized home environment. It establishes a common benchmark suite.
