ICSR 2024 Robot Design Competition

The design and development of various kinds of robots, and their intelligence and behavior have been evolving continuously. The new era of robotics is witnessing the increasing release of new innovative robots with a diverse set of applications. Especially, the past few years have provided more recognition to robots and their importance in various domains of life. in this regard, it is imperative to have more human interactive social capabilities of robots.

  • How can robots behave with human-like conversational abilities?
  • How robots can have human-like expressions?

If you have a solid idea/working prototype, send your entries to the flagship Robot Design Competition, organized by ICSR, which is now under the Global Robotics, Art, and Science Synergies (GRASS). We also encourage cross-disciplinary experts/teams to bring impactful solutions for the betterment of society.

Submission

Each submission should have a (maximum) 2-page summary. The template is flexible; however, it should include a concise abstract/synopsis of a maximum of 50 words, and enough details to judge the technical novelty of the proposed solution and/or innovative applications of robots. A single link of related video can be included. Video link is optional, and the maximum duration of the video should be 3 minutes. Keep in mind it is not a scientific publication, but the description of a robotics innovation with the potential to be developed as a project.
