The final of the RoboCup Junior Panama will take place on April 6 and 7 at the City of Knowledge Convention Center with the participation of 20 teams of young people from all over the country, who passed the regional competitions.
Young people will have the opportunity to demonstrate their robotics and programming skills with the hope of representing Panama in the next international RoboCup competition in Montreal, Canada, in June 2018.
This year, the RoboCup Junior brings as a novelty a new challenge called NAO, aimed at university students. It is the first football event "Tiro al Penal". In this challenge, robots must play football in a completely autonomous way. Competitors will use two NAO robots to participate in this new modality.
The competition will also have, as in previous years, On Stage and Rescue Line modalities.
In the On Stage modality, teams must create an artistic and robotic presentation on stage. The members of the jury will evaluate the complexity of the robots, their programming and the technical implementation of the presentation.
In the Rescue Line modality, the robot must be strong and intelligent enough to navigate through multiple obstacles such as hills and uneven ground. This challenge has the purpose of finding and transferring the victim to the evacuation point.
