Introduction

The FIRA Frontiers Camp (FFC), to be held just prior to FIRA RoboWorld Cup, provides a unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of robotics. The focus is on basic problem solving strategies, system development, testing, and debugging. Students will learn physics, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and software design. It also teaches students how to apply their robotics skills in other subjects such as physics and biology.

It must be stressed that the goal of the school is not to directly improve the chances of winning the following FIRA competitions. In fact, the lecturers and coaches will not be directly involved in the following FIRA competition as much as possible and will be told not to provide tricks and hints for the coming competition.

The FIRA Frontiers Camp is agnostic to the specific robot development kit and uses open-source software and hardware as much as possible.

 

Qualification

Each participant must submit their own qualification material in English. Please provide a 1 - 2 page description of your previous experience, your current robot system and development environment, and your interest in robotics.  In addition, participant personal data, such as name, school, address, phone, email, etc, is also included.

Submit your material as a pdf file to the Christine Kim (christine@fira.net)

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
