The Tsukuba Challenge, an open experiment for autonomous mobile robotics researchers, lets mobile robots travel in a real – and populated – city environment. Following the challenge in 2013, the mobile robots must navigate autonomously to their destination while, as the task of Tsukuba Challenge 2014, looking for and finding specific persons sitting in the environment. Total 48 teams (54 robots) seeking success in this complex challenge.
