We organized the “Tsukuba Challenge 2009,” which took place November 20-21 in Tsukuba, Japan. The “Tsukuba Challenge” is a Real World Robot Challenge which aims at realizing practical intelligent robots that can work in the real environment of daily life. As the objective of the Tsukuba Challenge 2009, the robots were required to make their way, safely and autonomously, over 1 km down a pedestrian street and through a park in Tsukuba.
