RoboCup IranOpen Concludes

After three days of fierce competition, the 11th edition of RoboCup IranOpen closed on Friday.
The competitions was held from April 6-8 in two major categories: junior teams of high school students and senior university student teams. The event was organized by Qazvin Azad University and Iranian RoboCup Regional Committee, IRNA reported.
The competitions included several leagues, namely rescue, industrial, aerial and mine detecting robots, as well as robotic soccer. The winners of various leagues were announced during a ceremony held at Tehran's Permanent Fairgrounds on Friday.
The event was sponsored by Bank Mellat, Bank Saderat Iran, Cafe Bazaar (the Iranian app store for Android) and leading local online retailer DigiKala.   
Key speaker at the closing event was Morteza Mousakhani, head of the Iranian RoboCup National Committee, who said the first round of the competition was held in 2006 with only 85 teams, and now, after 11 years, this year's event hosted 650 teams from several countries.
"This indicates the ever-growing interest and the amazing aptitude of the youth in the realms of artificial intelligence and robotic science," he said.
