Robotbenchmark offers a series of robot programming challenges that
address various topics across a wide range of difficulty levels, from
middle school to PhD. Users don't need to install any software on their
computer, cloud-based 3D robotics simulations run on a web page. They
can learn programming by writing Python code to control robot behavior.
The performance achieved by users is recorded and displayed online, so
that they can challenge their friends and show off their skills at robot
programming on social networks. Everything is designed to be extremely
easy-to-use, runs on any computer, any web browser, and is totally free
of charge.

This project is funded by Cyberbotics Ltd. and the Human Brain Project.

About the Human Brain Project: The Human Brain Project is a large
ten-year scientific research project that aims to build a collaborative
ICT-based scientific research infrastructure to allow researchers across
the globe to advance knowledge in the fields of neuroscience, computing,
neurorobotics, and brain-related medicine. The Project, which started on
1 October 2013, is a European Commission Future and Emerging
Technologies Flagship. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it is coordinated
by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and is largely funded by
the European Union. https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__humanbrainproject.eu&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=u1mZczRi1Fd5Pfbnv8QQ2gsmEpuBG3zo_F5SgjNcMSQ&s=9YlxsU4w4InlmvYmf_dFGj2VbcBXGpsHgqN9XR9h7wE&e=
