We are proud to announce the first ever Agile Robotics for Industrial Automation Competition (ARIAC). The competition is a joint effort between the IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) and NIST's Intelligent Systems Division. We are in the process of planning this simulation-based competition which is designed to promote robot agility by utilizing the latest advances in artificial intelligence and robot planning. We invite you to become a part of the planning of this first ever competition.
We are holding a live kickoff webinar during the Conference on Automation Science and Engineering. The event will have both talks on the topic of Robot Agility as well as training for participants.
ARIAC welcomes the involvement of anyone who wants to contribute. This may include but is not limited to, speaking at the kickoff, advising the organizers, contributing money or equipment.
