The RoboCup@Home league aims to develop service and assistive robot technology with high relevance for future personal domestic applications. A set of benchmark tests is used to evaluate the robots’ abilities and performance in realistic non-standardized home scenarios such as tidying up your room, supporting you in storing your weekly shopping, or serving your guests at a home party. In these scenarios, the teams show their most innovative and complex robot abilities for scoring points.
The main challenge in the RoboCup@Home league is to achieve an intelligent robot behavior that works in realistic and authentic environments. All teams participate in the Open-Platform league. For the standard-platform robots, i.e. Softbank's Pepper and Toyota's HSR, we offer additional league-specific certificates if sufficient teams participate.
