FIRA Innovation and Business

FIRA Innovation and Business is a place for demonstration of innovation and creativity in robotics, artificial intelligence, automation, and its related fields.


Nowadays, many robotics researchers and inventors are developing a project with a particular purpose, beyond the objectives of the existing FIRA leagues. This new league is a place for demonstration of innovation and creativity in robotics, artificial intelligence, automation, and its related fields. Participants in this league not only compete with the other teams but also they have a chance to show their development and design to the investors and industry executives, medium and professional professors in the exhibition venue.

Business model and commercialization potential of the ideas are the base objectives of this league. All entering teams should have a think of a business model for their projects. They are encouraged to have a plan for selling the production of their projects in a professional environment with professional visitors. This rule is assumed for both Professional and Youth participants. Through this project, students can learn to look into problems around us and find the solution with their robotics skills both hardware and software and apply to see what will happen if they really try to sell it in the real market. This will provide students how startup companies start their work.

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.
