We were really happy with our results at this year's FIRA Hurocup competition in Bristol, UK. The FIRA Hurocup is one of the oldest robotics competitions in the world, and currently consists of a wide array of events, from basketball free-throws and obstacle races, to unified soccer (having your robot join a team that is not pre-arranged), and all challenges must be run with the same unmodified robot.

This year, we came in second in unified soccer, and ranked fourth in weightlifting and the marathon, and fifth in sprinting. See the Gallery for many more images, and the Videos section for related footage. Congratulations to the team and thanks for the hard work of our lab members.

We will be hosting RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!  Jacky Baltes will be the General Chair of the event.

The Autonomous Agents Laboratory is one of the research laboratories within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, and is directed by Dr. John Anderson and Dr. Jacky Baltes. The goal of our work is the improvement of technology surrounding hardware and software agents as well as the development of applications employing these technologies. We are especially interested in cooperation in multi-agent settings, and the infrastructure necessary to support this and other forms of social interaction in intelligent systems.
