The Portuguese Robotics Open is an event promoted by the Portuguese Robotics Society (SPR – Sociedade Portuguesa de Robótica) that aims to promote science and technology among youngsters, teachers, researchers and the general public, through autonomous robot competitions. Taking place annually in different Portuguese cities, this event also includes a Scientific Meeting (ICARSC 2019), where national and foreign researchers in robotics are given the opportunity to present their latest research results in their area.
It is also in the Portuguese Robotics Open that the Portuguese teams are qualified for RoboCup, a world-wide robotics competition event that brings together the best teams in each country, and in which Portugal already has a track record of good results.
The competitions included in the Portuguese Robotics Open are organized in two levels: Junior and Senior.
- Junior competitions integrate the following modalities: Search and Rescue, Soccer, Onstage and Freebots;
- Major competitions integrate the following modalities: Middle Size League (MSL), 2D Simulation, 3D Simulation, Rescue Simulation, Standard Platform League (SPL), Autonomous Driving, Robot @Factory and Freebots.
In parallel to the competitions, this edition of the Robotics Open will also showcase the projects developed in the various robotics clubs of elementary and high schools. Lastly, there will also be accredited training actions in the areas of programming and robotics for elementary and high school teachers.
Admission is free. We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Portuguese Robotics Open!
