This paper describes the motivation for the development of the HuroCup competition and follows the rule development from its inaugural competition from 2002 to 2015. The history of HuroCup is broken down into its growing phase (2002-2006), a time of explosive growth (2007-2011), and current times. This paper describes the main research focus of HuroCup, the multi-event humanoid robot competition: (a) active balancing, (b) complex motion planning, and (c) human-robot interaction and shows how the various HuroCup events relate to those research topics. This paper concludes with some medium- and long-term goals of the rule development for HuroCup.
