TC-PEBRAS serves as a forum to address performance evaluation and benchmarking for robotic and automation systems, in general.

The TC-PEBRAS contributes to the progress of performance evaluation and benchmarking, focusing in intelligent robots and systems, including those with some high level cognitive capabilities and some degree of autonomy, by providing a forum for researchers and engineers in the industry to exchange their on-going work and ideas in this regard. A purpose of the TC is IN PARTICULAR to achieve better and agreed ideas on how to define and measure system level characteristics like 'autonomy', 'cognition' and 'intelligence'.
