Amazon Robotics Challenge
Amazon is able to quickly package and ship millions of items to customers from a network of fulfillment centers all over the globe. This wouldn't be possible without leveraging cutting-edge advances in technology. Amazon's automated warehouses are successful at removing much of the walking and searching for items within a warehouse. However, commercially viable automated picking in unstructured environments still remains a difficult challenge. It is our goal to strengthen the ties between the industrial and academic robotic communities and promote shared and open solutions to some of the big problems in unstructured automation. In order to spur the advancement of these fundamental technologies, Amazon Robotics organizes the Amazon Robotics Challenge (ARC). Read more at https://www.amazonrobotics.com/#/roboticschallenge.
