Autonomous Robot Manipulation Challenge
Organized and Supported by RoboCup, MathWorks, and Universal Robots
The Autonomous Robot Manipulation Challenge is a RoboCup-affiliated event aiming to involve young researchers and students to address challenging problems related to autonomous robot manipulation, within an educational scientific competition.
Participants are tasked with completing a recycling task with a robot manipulator in a dynamic environment. Robot manipulation and grasping are important skills for most robotic applications. This challenge aims to provide a leveled playing field for RoboCup participants and student teams to research and demonstrate their skills regarding manipulation perception and control in a simulated environment and later transport those algorithms to commercial robots. Teams will implement perception and control algorithms in MATLAB and Simulink to grasp and manipulate bottles, cans, and detergent pouches within a table to classify them into two bins. Points are awarded based on the performance of the algorithm in new environments.
