CNR 2013: Lectures: Martin Dlouhý (CZE)
The contest is open to everybody: the participants range from hobby roboticists to PhD university students and researchers. Also the robotic platforms vary from home-made carts with a web camera and a notebook to expensive commercial platforms with the latest sensor technology.
The contest is annual, on falls. There is no registration fee,
but a "homologation video" is required in advance to demonstrate
that the robot exists, it is capable of basic motion and fulfills
Robotour is planned to tour-de-Europe, although at the moment most of the teams are from Czech Republic and the contest locations are not too far (max 8h of travel) from Prague. Robotour already visited Brno (Czech Republic, 2009), Bratislava (Slovakia, 2010), Vienna (Austria, 2011) and Lodz (Poland, 2013). The next contest will be in Plzen (Czech Republic) in September 2014.
