Abstract

The following rules and regulations govern the All-Round event of HuroCup, a robotic septathlon where a single robot has to successfully master nine events. The robot must not be modified between events. The goal is to develop a benchmark problem for humanoid robotics that stresses versatility and robustness of the system.

The All-Round competition is the most important and prestigious HuroCup event as it tests the versatility, flexibility, and robustness of a humanoid robot. The winner in the all-round competition is determined by the single robot with the most points over all nine HuroCup events: sprint, penalty kick, obstacle run, spartan race, weight lifting, marathon, basketball, long jump, archery, and mini-drc.
