This challenge focuses on domestic service robots. The project aims to create robots with enhanced networking and cognitive abilities. They should be able to perform useful tasks such as helping the impaired and the elderly (one of the main goals of our group).
In the initial stages of the competition, individual robots will begin by overcoming basic individual tasks, such as navigating through the rooms of a house, manipulating objects or recognizing faces, and then coordinating to handle house-keeping tasks simultaneously, some of them under natural interaction with humans.
We want to take part in RoCKIn with the platform developed during the last two years in the Catedra Telefónica-ULE.
