RoboCup is an international scientific initiative with the goal to advance the state of the art of intelligent robots. Established in 1997, the original mission was to field a team of robots capable of winning against the human soccer World Cup champions by 2050.

To celebrate 20 years of RoboCup, the Federation is launching a video series featuring each of the leagues with one short video for those who just want a taster, and one long video for the full story. Robohub will be featuring one league every week leading up to RoboCup 2017 in Nagoya, Japan.

Robotics isn’t only about playing soccer it’s also about helping people. This week, we take a look at what it takes to be part of RoboCupRescue. You’ll hear about the history and ambitions of RoboCup from the trustees, and inspiring teams from around the world.
