TOMSK, May 12 – RIA Tomsk. The Russian stage of RoboTraffik in 2021 will be held at the RoboCup Russia Open venue, which will be held from May 13 to 16; at a special landfill, participants will present automated cars they have created, including those with computer vision technology, the event organizer - Tomsk University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) said.

Earlier it was reported that RoboCup is a non-commercial project to promote artificial intelligence, robotics and other areas of science and technology with the help of robotic competitions. Since 2016, the Russian stage of the Robocup Russia Open championship is held in Tomsk. In 2021, it will take place from May 13 to 16 at the Integration school in the Tomsk district.

It is specified that for the first time this year, the Russian stage of the RoboTraffik championship will be held at the RoboCup Russia Open venue in Tomsk. These are international competitions for models of robotic cars, which were first held in Israel in 2010. RoboTraffik will be held in Tomsk for the fourth time, but for the first time on the same venue with the Russian stage of the RoboCup International Championship.

"14 teams from Tomsk, Pervouralsk, Chelyabinsk, Kansk and other cities of Russia will take part in RoboTraffik. Many of them are the prize-winners of the international stage of the RoboTraffik Technion, which takes place in Israel", says the report.

It is noted that competitions will be held in two regulations: "Robotraffic" and "Robotraffic with сomputer vision". Participants have to create robotic vehicles that can move independently. And in the second case - also have сomputer vision. The training ground for competitions was developed by the resident company of the TUSUR business incubator Popkov Robotics.

"Unmanned vehicles with сomputer vision systems is the urgent direction, which is not presented in the RoboCup Russia Open championship, but it will be interesting to our participants. I am sure that the uniting of our events is a big step in the interests of the participants and the robotics and artificial intellect in general", - the head of the TUSUR Laboratory of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Evgeny Shandarov is quoted.

As previously reported, Robocup-2021 will be held in the three leagues: robot football, rescue robots and shows with robots. A feature will be a large-scale online broadcast of the championship on the YouTube channel of the event. For the first time RoboCup-2021 will be attended by employees of the regional department of EMERCOM who will show how robotics is used in the work of rescuers.
