Aim of this challenge

The aim of this challenge is to provide students and researchers in the humanoid robotics research community with a common development platform and an opportunity for competition and thereby facilitate cutting-edge research in this field through the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and technical resources.

Compared to several simulation-based humanoid robot competitions held in the past (e.g., JVRC, DRC, WRS, Robocup), the major uniqueness of this challenge is that it focuses of the potential ability of humanoid robots to perform acrobatic movements.
