HUMABOT CHALLENGE - Robot Competition at HUMANOIDS 2014

Official Announcement

We are proud to announce the HUMABOT CHALLENGE, to be held at IEEE-RAS
HUMANOIDS on November 20th 2014.

For details see http://www.irs.uji.es/humabot/

The competition will focus on algorithmic development for fully autonomous
robots, i.e., robots that operate with no external control. In this
edition, tests will be held in a small-scale kitchen of a house.

The HUMABOT CHALLENGE is characterized by the use of the middle-size
humanoid platforms. It is intended for using the Darwin-Op platform
manufactured by Robotis, or any other robot with similar characteristics.

IEEE-RAS HUMANOIDS´2014 provides travel support for students participating
in the HUMABOT CHALLENGE 2014. In order to be granted travel support,
students must submit an official application form. The student's travel
expense will be partially supported, depending on the number of applicants
