Robotics competitions serve as an excellent platform for benchmarking the independent efforts of teams across the world in common challenge scenarios, promote discussions and exchange of knowledge, enrich research by offering new challenges, and motivate researchers and practitioners to push boundaries. The spectacle and excitement provided by competitions also help draw the interest of new and budding researchers.
This year, IEEE ICRA 2023 will host 13 exciting robotics competitions in areas including humanoid robots, mobile robots, legged robots, robot manipulation and grasping, aerial vehicles, and forays into important emerging topics such as robot ethics. These competitions cover a significant breadth and range of expertise offering opportunities for most robotics researchers to participate. Check out the details of the individual competitions and get in touch with the competition organisers to register your interest. We also welcome everyone joining ICRA 2023 to visit the Competitions Hall and witness the events during the conference
