NOTE: The conference and the competition are over. This site will be maintained for historical purposes for as long as possible, but there will be no significant additions. Watch for a link to the 1998 competition.

Welcome to the home page for the Sixth Annual Mobile Robot Competition, which will take place as part of AAAI-97, the Fourteenth National Conference on Artificial Intelligence, along with the AAAI-97 Robot Exhibition. If you've been here before, take a look at What's New in our web to save some time.

This competition has been held in conjunction with the AAAI annual conference since 1992, attracting entries from a variety of educational and research organizations. Each year, multiple events have been staged to allow different types of indoor mobile robots to demonstrate their capabilities. For information on last year's competition, see the Fifth Annual Mobile Robot Competition web site.
