Rescue Line

Rescue Line sub-league open to students from age 13 up to 19 years of age (age as of 1st of July ). An autonomous robot should follow a black line while overcoming different problems in a modular arena formed by tiles with different patterns. The floor is white in color and the tiles are on different levels connected with ramps. Team members may compete in Rescue Line twice (2 international events). After two participation, they must move to Rescue Maze.

Rescue Maze

The robot needs to search through a maze for victims. The robot should not find the fastest path through the maze, instead it should explore as much of the maze as possible. The robot will get points for each victim found and will deliver a rescue kit close to the victim. The robot must avoid areas with a black floor. Rescue Maze sub-league open to students from age 13 up to and including 19 years of age (age as of 1st of July).Team members may compete in Rescue Line twice (2 international events). After competing in Rescue Line twice, they must move to Rescue Maze.

Rescue Simulation

In Rescue Simulation sub-league teams have to develop and program appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robots to navigate through the real and virtual worlds to collect objects while competing with another team’s robot that is searching and collecting objects in the same real and virtual worlds. Teams are judged in three areas - Technical Interview, Technical Challenge, and Tournament.

Rescue Line Entry

The rules for the Rescue Line Entry are based on the international rules of RoboCupJunior Rescue Line.

Rescue Maze Entry

The rules for the Rescue Maze Entry are based on the international rules of RoboCupJunior Rescue Maze.

OnStage

OnStage Preliminary

RoboCupJunior OnStage (formerly Dance) invites teams to develop a creative stage performance using autonomous robots that they have designed, built and programmed. The objective is to create a robotic performance of 1 to 2 minutes that uses technology to engage an audience. The challenge is intended to be open-ended. This includes a whole range of possible performances, for example dance, storytelling, theatre or an art installation. The performance may involve music but this is optional. Teams are encouraged to be as creative, innovative and entertaining, in both the design of the robots and in the design of the overall performance. The performance may involve up to two team members on the stage at any one time but this is optional. The emphasis must be on the robotic performance rather than the human performers. Teams will be considered Preliminary unless they have one or more members who have attended two international RoboCupJunior competitions in any league. All team members must be aged 13 to 19-year-old (age as of 1st of July). Teams are judged in the following areas - technical demonstration, technical interview, OnStage performance and a Technical Description Paper.

OnStage Advanced

OnStage Advanced sub-league is more challenging category within which experienced teams can compete.

RoboCup@Home Education

RoboCup@Home Education is an education initiative in RoboCup@Home that promotes education efforts to boost RoboCup@Home participation and service robot development. RoboCup@Home education Challenge includes several education activities, including support for team development before the event and a workshop during the challenge. These education activities drive the teams to build a suitable robot for participating in the challenge and to get the basic knowledge about solutions to be developed, aiming at encouraging participation also of inexperienced teams.
