Welcome to RoCKIn Wiki. RoCKIn (short for "Robot Competitions Kick Innovation in Cognitive Systems and Robotics") is an EU project that will be run over the next three years, consisting of robot competitions, symposiums, educational RoCKIn camps and technology transfer workshops. Our mission is to act as a catalyst for smarter, more dependable robots. The goal of this Wiki is to provide required information for team participating in RoCKIn competitions and camps.

On this wiki teams can find the required information for each of the benchmarks, for both @Home and @Work.

RoCKIn Camp

The RoCKIn Camp 2015 took place from 18th to 22nd March in the ECHORD++ facility of Peccioli (Italy) and it is designed as a hands-on week long school, where teams improve the performance of their systems through working sessions in the RoCKIn competition tasks and functional benchmarks.


Benchmarking in RoCKIn has been developed to allow for the quality of the sub-system components to be recognized, through the Functionality Benchmarks, as well as to assess the performance of complete systems in the overall task, through the Task Benchmarks.

The datasets collected through the benchmarking activities can be downloaded here.
