AAAI Conference and Competition

Posted 25 Jul 2002 at 12:58 UTC by steve Share This

The 11th annual AAAI Mobile Robot Competition is coming up next week. The Rochester Democrat & Chronical has an article on one of the robot builders participating in the "Hors d'oeuvres Anyone?" event. The robot competition is part of the 18th annual AAAI Conference which will be held July 28 through August 1 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The Edmonton Journal has an article about the overall conference.

Right now I'm sitting in my office waiting for the airport shuttle to pick us up for our flight up there. I work at NIST (I've mentioned this once or twice before) in the Intelligent Systems Division, where they've developed a "standard" Urban Search and Rescue course for USAR robots. There's information on the AAAI site, the competition is called RoboRescue. We've taken apart our course and shipped it up North, and then we get to build it, run the competition, tear it down and ship it back again.

Anyway, if any of you all is going to be there, come by the RoboRescue course, and if you see a NIST guy with a ponytail and a hat on, introduce yourself, that'd be me. :-)
