Humanoid robots attract interest from public and researchers around the world. However, coordination and fluidity of movement, while keeping balance to accomplish a given task, is still an open challenge for the humanoids.
In 2012, the IEEE RAS Latin American Robotic Council introduces a new robot competition category, with the purpose to develop humanoid robot coordination. The competition is called Humanoid Robot Racing – IEEE HRR..
