RoboCupJunior 2021

Rescue Maze League

At RoboCup2021, we will be hosting a virtual competition of the Rescue Maze. 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 Maze teams to partake in a simulation challenge. This is optional and will not be part of the “scoring” of the Maze competition.

Simulation

The simulation competition (Maze Simulation) uses the New Simulation (Demonstration) ruleset and platform (Erebus).

In order to keep the competition structure simpler, the following elements will be removed from the original New Simulation (Demonstration) rules.

  • Area 2 (Half wall)
  • Area 3 (Curve wall)
  • Hazard maps

Simulation Platform

This is a newly developed simulator based on Webots for RoboCupJunior Rescue. You can find some tutorials here.

Official Rules

The simulation competition basically follows the rules of New Simulation (Demonstration), but with some changes as indicated above.

Practice Worlds

We are providing practice world files that can be used in Erebus.
