Title: Contests in China Put Next-Gen Robot Technologies to the Test
Published: September 13, 2011
Abstract: This article describes the 2011 Robot Challenge that took place at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Shanghai, China. The quartet of contests-the Virtual Manufacturing Automation Competition (VMAC), the Mobile Microrobotics Challenge (MMC), the Solutions in Perception Challenge (SPC), and the Modular and Reconfigurable Robot Challenge (MRRC)-are designed to prove the viability of advanced robotics and microrobotics technologies.
