RTC Cup was founded by The Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics, in Saint-Petersburg - one of the largest research centers in Russia - Official RTC website
Five уears ago we were inspired by Robocup Rescue competitions, but there was no Robocup community in Russia. So we decided to create our own competition in order to achive goals similar to Robocup Rescue mission.
Our competition is for children, students and engineers who create robotic systems for "search and rescue". During all this time, we have had over 2500 participants from 97 cities all over Russia.
Now we are glad to bring it to international level!
