Through its acquisition of Aldebaran, the developer of the iconic robots Pepper and Nao, URG builds upon a rich history including participation in the global robotics competition, RoboCup. Held annually, this event brings together the world's most talented roboticists, researchers, and enthusiasts to showcase cutting-edge technology and foster collaboration and research in the field. 

Peter Stone, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Texas, Austin has a unique background as the first US based participant, and now as a leader of the UT, Austin based team that excels in the global ranks. “RoboCup combines various components such as perception, decision making, localization, and action. There are research opportunities in each of these components individually, but the most important feature of RoboCup that drives innovation is in the integration aspect. Successful teams must integrate each of these areas, putting all the pieces together into a computationally efficient program.”   

United Robotics Group continues to push boundaries in robotics and remains dedicated to creating a brighter future for students and society. With CobiotX at the helm of their mission, the organization strives to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skills, empowering students and teachers to become the inventors and innovators of tomorrow.
