The Robocup@home Standard League wants you!

Toyota’s Human Support Robot (HSR) is the robot, with the right skills (and code), that could make the dream of “Rosie” from The Jetsons a reality. 

With top-of-the-line sensor and actuation capability, HSR is one of the best mobile manipulator platforms in development today. It is fully equipped to autonomously map and navigate the home environment.  Properly programmed, it can open doors,  fetch a cold beverage from the fridge, tidy up the den and even load the dishwasher.

 

One of the best mobile manipulator platforms available, HSR was selected to be a standard platform in the upcoming Robocup@Home Standard Platform League challenge.  Robocup@Home is the largest international competition for autonomous service robots.  It is held annually as a part of the RoboCup initiative.  This challenge uses a set of benchmark tests to evaluate a robot's performance in realistic home environments. 

The second RoboCup@Home Domestic Standard Platform League (RoboCup@Home DSPL) will be held at RoboCup 2018 Montreal. 
We invite user teams that plan to participate in RoboCup 2018 Montreal to apply for the Toyota HSR.

Deadline is September 30th.  For details, visit http://www.robocupathome.org/CFP-DSPL-2018.
