The 2014 SoC Robot Competition Took Place
Professor Hoi-Jun Yoo of the Department of Electrical Engineering at KAIST and his research team hosted a competition for miniature robots with artificial intelligence at KINTEX in Ilsan, Korea, on October 23-26, 2014. The competition, called the 2014 SoC Robot War, showed the latest developments of semiconductor and robot technology through the robots’ presentations of the Korean martial art, Taekwondo, and hurdles race. SoC is a system on ship, an integrated circuit that holds all components of a computer or other electronic systems in a single chip. SoC robots are equipped with an artificial intelligence system, and therefore, can recognize things on their own or respond automatically to environmental changes. SoC robots are developed with the integration of semiconductor technology and robotics engineering. Marking the thirteenth competition this year since its inception, the Robot War featured two competitions between HURO and Taekwon Robots. Under the HURO competition, participating robots were required to run a hurdle race, pass through barricades, and cross a bridge. The winning team received an award from the president of the Republic of Korea. Robots participating in the Taekwon Robot competition performed some of the main movements of Taekwondo such as front and side kicks and fist techniques. The winning team received an award from the prime minster of the Republic of Korea. A total of 105 teams with 530 students and researchers from different universities across the country participated in preliminaries, and 30 teams qualified for the final competition.
"The 2010 Artificial Intelligence Robot War Competition" begins to receive applications
[Event Notice] “The 2010 Artificial Intelligence Robot War Competition” begins to receive applications A good opportunity to gauge the intelligence of your robots “The 2010 Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robot War Competition” will be held in October 2010, and the Competition has been receiving applications from contestants since April 1st. The deadline for the application will be May 31st, 2010. Qualified contestants must be a minimum of two, but less than six, team members, and they will compete in one of the two fields: System on Chip (SoC) Taekwon Robot and Humanoid Robot (HURO). Winners will be decided based on the intelligence capabilities presented by a robot’s platform that mimics key functions of the human brain. SoC Taekwon Robot will compete against one another by using a camera installed on its head to recognize visual images, locations, distances, and gestures of the other competing robot. HURO competition is a new entry begun this year, and winners will be determined in accordance with the robot’s ability to perform given missions and fights. Missions are to go through a track installed with obstacles, recognize colors and shapes of barriers, and knock down barriers to earn scores. Fighting will be performed in the form of a Korean martial art, Tae-kwon-do. The Korean government has nominated Robotics as one of the key growth engines to develop IT industry and Korean economy. Robotics converge many of different engineering fields, such as machinery, materials, components, and embedded software. In particular, the SoC is an essential technology for Korea to continuously take lead in the semi-conductor industry in the world, which is an important element for robotics. SoC stands for System on Chip, an integrated chip that assembles various chips and components to be fabricated together on a single chip, instead of building them on a circuit board. The SoC technology has advantages of higher performance, smaller space requirements, lower memory requirements, higher system reliability, and lower consumer costs. An artificial intelligence SoC robot is autonomous because it can adapt itself to changes in various environments and reach a given goal without constantly receiving external orders.
