RoboCup Junior Rescue and Open Day

Over two weekends in August, the Intelligent Robots Group showcased its work to the wider Perth community.

During the Curtin University Open Day on the 2nd, the Baxter Research Robot, the RoboCupRescue Confined Space Robotics Challenge and the Open Academic Robot Kit were demonstrated in Building 314.


The following week, the RoboCup Junior Western Australia competition also saw a demonstration of Baxter, the Confined Space Robotics Challenge and the Open Academic Robot Kit. These activities aim to not only inform the community about the work of the Intelligent Robots Group but to also encourage schools in the Perth area to join the second pilot of these initiatives.
