World Robot Summit aims to bring together the most advanced robot technologies from all over the world, solve some of our toughest challenges, deepen people’s understanding of robots, and encourage positive discussions that will lead to concrete uses and applications of robots.
WRS consists of a World Robot Expo (WRE) exhibition and a World Robot Challenge (WRC) competition. WRC features competition categories for industrial, service, and disaster robots, as well as a Junior category for education.
MathWorks supports this goal by providing software tools for students competing in any of the WRC categories. Participants can take advantage of MATLAB, Simulink, Robotics System Toolbox, and other products to develop algorithms, test them in simulation, and deploy them to hardware.
