AAAI Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Jeffrey Forbes, Workshop Chair, Bill Smart and Sheila Tejada, General Cochairs
The events of the Fourteenth AAAI Robot Competition and Exhibition, held July 14, 2005 as part of Twentieth National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-2005), included the robot challenge, an open interaction task, and a scavenger hunt event. In addition, the exhibition was held to allow groups to demonstrate their research outside of the robot competitions. Although participants focused on the research and work done prior to the competition and exhibition, they also discussed the performance of the systems during the contest — instances of both failure and success were heard. The future direction of each team's research was briefly mentioned as well. This workshop gave the participants an opportunity to share their research with fellow researchers and to get valuable feedback for future work. Each of the participants was invited to submit a paper to this technical report.
