Event DetailsAdvancements in autonomous vehicle technology across all domains - air, land, and water - are moving fast in public and private sectors, including academia through research and competitions. In support of these advancements, the Maritime RobotX Challenge was created. In 2012, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) launched the first biennial Maritime RobotX Challenge.
RobotX is RoboNation’s most complex robotic competition to-date. Through this competition, we aspire to engage regional partners around the Pacific Rim while creating a new, high-level competition focused on autonomous surface vehicle platforms and sensors. The third RobotX Challenge will be held in December 2018 in Hawaii.
A new element of RobotX is the creation of the RobotX Forum, intended to be an interactive gathering with presentations from academia, senior officials, and industry leaders involved in the development and use of autonomous maritime systems. The second RobotX Forum will be held in December 2019, location to be announced soon.
We are excited to be back in the beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii for the 2018 Maritime RobotX Challenge, December 8-15, 2018. More info coming soon. But in the meantime…
Check out the 2018 RobotX Rules for the upcoming Challenge and provide feedback to the COMMUNITY.
