IEEE

The IEEE Latin American Robotics Contest for Students is in its seventy edition and is sponsored by the IEEE Latin American Robotics Council. Its objective is to foster the scientific and technological development in the areas of Autonomous Robotics and Mechatronics in Latin America.

The leagues of this contest have a great portion of challenges find by mobile robots in the real world, like dynamic environment navigation, environment exploration, execution of contingency procedures in dangerous environments, environmental monitoring, etc. The VII IEEE Latin American Robotics Competition for Students subsumes the VI IEEE Brazilian Robotics Competition for Students.

RoboCup

The Latin American RoboCup Open, which is in its fourth edition, is an event supported by the RoboCup Federation. The RoboCup is a international joint project to foster the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics and related fields. It is an attempt to stimulate these areas using standard problems where many technologies can be used and tested.

The IV Latin American RoboCup Open subsumes the II Brazilian RoboCup Open, the V RoboCup Brazil and the III RoboCup Junior Brazil. The Brazilian National Team for the 2009 RoboCup World Championship, which will be held in Graz, Austria, will be defined based on the results of the V RoboCup Brazil and the III RoboCup Junior Brazil.
