RoboCupJunior Rescue Simulation

Demonstration Competition

Following the June 23-25th Workshops, the RoboCupJunior Rescue League and the RoboCup Rescue Simulation League are going to host a simulation demonstration competition virtually. The competition will be run based on the RoboCupJunior Rescue Simulation (Demonstration) Rules 2020*. All teams under 19 years old as of July 1st 2020 are invited to this demonstration competition.

Between Webots and CoppeliaSim, the Webots Platform was selected to be used for this demonstration competition. All relevant documentation (including recordings from the workshops) for the Webots platform can be found here. Furthermore, you can join the discord channel to engage in discussions and ask questions to the developers. There will be subsequent software update releases to the current Webots Platform (expecting the next update in a week or two) - which will be announced on the RCJ Official Forum.

Prior to the competition day, the organisers will run each team's robot controller code. On the competition day, we will live stream a video of each team's code execution, following a predefined schedule. Certificates of excellence will be awarded by the RCJ Rescue League to the outstanding teams.
