This book describes the results of aFP7 project RoCKIn ("Robot
Competitions Kick Innovation in Cognitive Systems and Robotics") which
was one of the two pioneer projects on robot competitions in Europe
funded by the European Commission, representing the acknowledgment of
robot competitions as important tools to advance research, education and
public awareness on Robotics.
We are soon to announce another FP7 Robotics monograph which is an
exciting achievement for us as both monographs focus on the area of
Robotics, an InTechOpen trademark subject.
