IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions (ICARSC)
The National Robotics Festival promotes Science and Technology among young people, teachers, researchers and the general public, through competitions of autonomous robots. Held annually in different cities, this event also includes a Scientific Meeting (ICARSC 2021), where national and foreign researchers in the field of Robotics are given the opportunity to present their latest research results in their area.
Robotic competitions are designed to promote an innovative, entrepreneurial spirit in children and young people through active teaching methods, as well as the acquisition of transversal skills, also disclosing this area to the general public.
At the National Robotics Festival, Portuguese teams are selected for RoboCup, a global robotics competition, which brings together the best teams in each country, and in which Portugal already has a history of good results.
