Leagues - FIRA Youth - HuroCup Junior

HuroCup Junior

As a benchmark problem, the goal of the HuroCup league is to develop humanoid robots that can perform several tasks in complex environments.


The goal of the HuroCup league is to encourage research in practical, autonomous, highly mobile, flexible, and versatile robotic platforms. Intended applications for these robots are, among others, search and rescue robots, healthcare robots, intelligent household helper robots, etc.


The HuroCup Junior competition emphasizes the development of flexible, robust, and versatile robots that can perform many different tasks in different domains.  HuroCup encourages research into the many areas of humanoid robotics, especially walking and balancing complex motion planning, and human-robot interaction. In addition to the single events (e.g., archery, sprint, marathon, United soccer, obstacle run, long jump, spartan race, marathon, weightlifting, and basketball), there is an all-round competition for the single robot that performs best overall events.

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.
