The International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2016 hosted three robot challenges in Daejeon, South Korea. They were the fourth Humanoid Robot Application Challenge (HRAC 2016), the Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition (RGMC), and the Autonomous Drone Racing (ADR) face-off in the Mos Espa Daejeon Arena. The motivation for holding these competitions at IROS 2016 was to provide members of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society with a unique technical-demonstration setting for research labs from both academia and industry to show off the implementation of robotic technologies.
