RoboSoft Grand Challenge

Livorno (IT)
From Friday, 29 April, 2016 to Saturday, 30 April, 2016
Participate in the first outdoor challenge of soft robots in terrestrial locomotion, underwater exploration and dextrous manipulation, and win a €5000 prize. The call for expression of interest closes on 31 October 2015 (extended deadline).

Challenge with your robot the others in one or more of the three amazing scenarios, or tackle the whole Grand Challenge!

The RoboSoft Grand Challenge aims at inspiring and pushing innovations in robotics technology and includes tasks in three different competitions:

  • Terrestrial race: a competition on different terrains with obstacles avoidance
  • Manipulation: a competition in the manipulation task of different objects
  • Underwater race: a competition for underwater soft robots that have to move in a confined environment

The RoboSoft Grand Challenge is open to international teams of experts in soft robotics, young researchers and students, but also to the wide public and curiosity driven people able to compete in this field. Check the important dates at the event website.

It is organised by the FET RoboSoft coordination action.
