At RoboCup2021, we will be hosting a virtual competition of the Rescue Line. Only teams that pass the qualification in their each region will be able to participate in RoboCup 2021.
The main event for the 2021 competition will be through a live session to show off your robots on the progress, innovation, and quality against the 2021 rules. Each team will have live presentations to a panel of interviewers followed by a Q&A session and a demonstration of your robot if feasible.
One of the highlights of an international competition is a SuperTeam event where teams from different countries collaborate. We will run SuperTeams with modifications to assess the performance of each pair to match the remote competition environment.
We invite ALL Rescue Line teams to partake in a simulation challenge. This is optional and will not be part of the “scoring” of the Line competition.
Each team will be paired up to do a superteam challenge lasting over a few days. Relevant prerequisites and information will be presented closer to the competition.
The sBotics simulator will be used as the official platform for the simulation competition in the Rescue Line Challenge at the RoboCup 2021.
The sBotics simulator has been developed over a number of years and has been tried and tested in the Brazilian regional competitions. For the RCJ internationals, the sBotics developers modified the simulated environment to be compatible with 2021 Rescue Line rules and translated the platform and documentation to english to be used at an international stage.
