RoboCup 2016

RoboCup is the leading and most diverse competition for intelligent robots and one of the world’s most important technology events in research and training. The World Cup of robots combines a variety of interdisciplinary challenges from robotics, artificial intelligence, informatics, as well as electrical and mechanical engineering, among others.

Ever since 1997, the RoboCup Federation has been pursuing its objective of developing intelligent humanoid soccer-playing robots which by 2050 will be able to beat the current FIFA champions.

Germany hosted RoboCup 2016 during 30 June to 4th July 2016. Approximately 3,500 participants from 45 countries participated in RoboCup 2016. Here is the videos of competitions…

Amazon Picking Challenge 2016

This competition was to build their own robot hardware and software that can attempt simplified versions of the general task of picking items from shelves. The challenge combines object recognition, pose recognition, grasp planning, compliant manipulation, motion planning, task planning, task execution, error detection and recovery.

This was the second annual Amazon Picking Challenge organized along with RoboCup 2016, first one was held at ICRA 2015 and Team RBO was the winner.

Team Delft won the stow task finals by collecting 214 points. Second came NimbRo Picking (186 points) and the team from MIT ended third (164 points).

Automatica 2016

Automatica  is the central meeting point for manufacturers and users of assembly and handling technology, robotics and machine vision. It is equally ideal as a platform for suppliers of the associated technologies.  In this way, Automatica is able to cover the entire spectrum of automation. From individual components through to complete systems, from concrete applications through to relevant services, AUTOMATICA exhibits entire value-added chains while bringing together suppliers and customers from all over the world and meeting their respective needs.

Germany hosted 7th Automatica 2016 from 21st June to 24th June 2016. We brought to you most interesting robo videos from automatica 2016.

Automatica 2016 | Kick Off

Automatica 2016 | Robots in Action

Automatica 2016 | Human-Robot Collaboration

Automatica 2016 | Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 stands for the fourth industrial revolution. Cars, machines and even whole factories communicate with each other. Primarily, robots should take over monotonous and dangerous tasks for humans and they should be used flexibly and ultimately, capable of organising themselves. Human-robot collaboration is key to Industry 4.0.

Automatica 2016 | Service Robotics

Service robotics is in demand. In contrast to “classical” industrial robotics, the emphasis is on applications for the service sector: walking aids for patients, self-propelled cleaning machines, aids for agriculture, in the air, underwater or even in outer space – service robotics is now in practical use everywhere.
