RoCKIn 2015

Parque das

21 - 23 November

RoCKIn2015, the second and major competition event in the EU-funded robotics project RoCKIn, was held in Lisbon from 21-23 November 2015. The event was open free-of-charge to the public, who got the chance to see state-of-the-art robots autonomously perform challenging tasks in realistic domestic and industrial environments. The competition was hosted in the striking 'Portugal Pavilion' and Lisbon's premier science museum - 'The Pavilion of Knowledge'. Both are situated within Parque das Nações, one of Lisbon's most prestigious leisure areas, boasting an array of restaurants, bars, museums and expansive green spaces all within a 5km stretch along the river Tagus.

Teams from around the world will took to the RoCKIn@Work and RoCKIn@Home arenas to showcase their robotic engineering prowess in front of a live audience, including renowned robotics experts and senior officials from the European Commission. Robots were put to the test through scenarios, tasks and, benchmarking criteria that are highly relevant to real world processes and conducive for developing the smarter, more dependable robots RoCKIn strives for. Further details on the Challenges can be found in the RoCKIn@Home Rulebook + Nutshell document and the RoCKIn@Work Rulebook + Nutshell document.
